Blistered Shishito Peppers

Posted in : Extras, Side Dishes, Uncategorized, Vegan/Vegetarian on by : Marisol Chancellor

I’ve seen these peppers going around Instagram for quite a while and I’ve been wanting to make them so bad! I love blistered peppers of course but I always end up cooking them or adding them to sauces, that’s why I was so intrigued about Shishito. Let me tell you, they’re so delicious! They are almost like a tiny poblano pepper, except mild. Shishito Peppers are perfect as a snack or as a side dish.

I blistered the skin of the peppers on a very hot cast iron skillet and added a few ingredients like sesame oil, coconut aminos, garlic, lime juice and sesame seeds. I got inspired by a recipe from @sustainablecooks. I ended up adding some other flavors here and there. The end result was amazing! I hope you give them a try

I used 1 8oz bag of @freidasproduce Shishito peppers. You can find them at your local HEB.

Find recipe below.

Blistered Shishito Peppers


  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 8 oz Shishito peppers
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Lime
  • sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Heat a cast iron skillet on medium high heat for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the sesame oil and peppers. Let the peppers sit undisturbed for a couple of minutes. Once they start blistering turn them around and repeat a couple more times until you get them as blistered as you want.
  3. Add the coconut aminos and minced garlic, stir around for a couple of minutes. Don’t let the garlic burn!
  4. Transfer to a plate and finish with a squeeze of lime and garnish with sesame seeds.
  5. Enjoy!
