Blistered Shishito Peppers

Jump to recipe

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.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
