Blistered Shishito Peppers

Shishito peppers are a really fun snack or appetizer, being mostly mild with the occasional rogue spicy pepper. You’ll eat the whole pepper (minus the stem), seed cavity and all. If you are worried about getting the spicy one, do a little taste test at the tip, otherwise you can just pop the whole pepper in your mouth. This easy way to fix them takes only 5 minutes.


1 CSA basket whole shishito peppers

2 teaspoons oil

1 teaspoon sea salt


Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a skillet over medium high to high heat. Add shishitos and toss gently to coat in oil. Saute for a couple minutes until they start to blister and pop. Toss again and saute for an additional couple minutes until they are slightly browned and blistered all over. Sprinkle sea salt. Remove from heat and serve as is.
