I sent my husband to get pepper starters this year for our garden. I told him to get whatever he thought would be fun to grow! Little did I know we were going to hit the jackpot because he got one plant that produces a pepper for my favorite recipe…..blistered shishitos!
One of my favorite parts of these little peppers is they are a lottery. They are sweet with just a touch of heat but occasionally you will get a BOMB and it wakes you right up! They are the personality of peppers in my opinion.
Blistered Shishito Peppers
These peppers are very thin skinned so the blistering part of this takes just a few moments. It is such an easy and quick recipe for such a delicious outcome. They pair really well at BBQ or just for a snack! Don’t forget the chopsticks!
- 2 handfuls of shishito peppers, washed and patted dry
- 2 tbsp. freshly grated ginger
- 1 tbsp. soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp. honey
- Prepare your sauce by combine your freshly grated ginger, honey and soy sauce in a bowl and whisking.
- Make a small slit in each pepper so that they don’t explode while blistering them.
- Heat a dry skillet on medium-high heat and then add peppers. Allow to char before flipping and repeat on the other side.
- Coat with sauce, and enjoy!
