In The Kitchen: Shishito Peppers

Jan 9th

Have you ever had shishito peppers? We first got introduced a couple years ago at a sushi restaurant and since then they have been one of our favorite Japanese appetizers. Yum! Recently the farmer’s market near us has been selling them and we decided to try making some on our own. All you have to do is put a little olive oil in a pan, throw in and blacken the peppers then add some kosher salt at the end.

Warning: These are addictive.

Warning #2: We learned that “1 out of 10” are extremely hot. My sister-in-law and I learned this the hard way when we went out and got the only hot peppers. Normally they are not spicy at all.

Warning #3: Nothing else…that’s it.
