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.
