Shishito peppers are a variety of pepper from East Asia, more specifically from Japan. They are small, thin-walled, and usually about two to four inches long with a bright green color. Shishito peppers have a unique flavor profile that is sweet, and very mild. While most shishito peppers are mild, it’s said that about one in every ten tends to have a spicy kick, making it a bit of a culinary adventure when consuming them.

Shishito peppers are often used in Asian cuisine and have become increasingly popular in other parts of the world as well, especially in the United States. They are typically served blistered and salted as an appetizer, but can also be used in a variety of dishes including stir-fries and salads.

Recipe for Blistering Shishito Peppers

In a skillet, heat the grape seed, avocado or any high heat oil over medium-high heat.

Sauté the shishito peppers in the oil, turning them as needed to cook all sides.

Once the chilies start to blister, remove them from the heat, sprinkle them with sea salt, and lemon juice and serve.
