Shishito peppers are very popular right now. You can find them on many restaurant menus. If you haven’t had them, you are missing out. They are delicious. They’re a mildly sweet, wrinkled Asian pepper and they are so flavorful. They aren’t spicy at all. The best way and the most popular way to serve them, is to lightly stir fry them with a little soy sauce. I like to get them a little charred and add a bit of heat….like some chili paste or red pepper flakes.
It’s a great appetizer or side dish. Seriously, they are so full of flavor. I love these things. I love to eat them with a hot bowl of rice. Yum!
If you’re looking for something different, you should definitely give these a try. Most grocery stores carry them and of course you can find them at a good Asian market as well. Try em out!!
