Blistered Shishito Peppers

Serves 4
Time 5 min
Shishitos are mild Japanese peppers with a thin skin that blisters quickly. Though usually pretty tame, a spicy pepper will pop up every once in a while which makes them extra fun as a party appetizer. Simple to prepare, they are easy to cook on the grill or on the stovetop. Watch our how-to video.
Ingredients
  • 6 ounces shishito peppers
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
Method

In a medium bowl, toss together peppers, olive oil and sesame oil until coated.

Prepare a grill for medium-high heat cooking. 

Place a perforated pan on the grill grate and prepare the grill for medium-high heat cooking. 

Place on the preheated pan on the grill, cover and cook, flipping once, until peppers are beginning to char and soften, 4 to 5 minutes total. 

Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with salt. 

Serve immediately.

Alternatively, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. 

Transfer to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until peppers are beginning to char and soften, about 5 minutes. 

Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with salt.

 Serve immediately.
