Walking through my local grocery story this morning, I saw a gorgeous display of various kinds of peppers. Right in the center was a box of shishitos. Never heard of them? Not surprising! Shishito are small Asian “sweet” peppers used often in Japanese cooking. They are about the length of your index finger and usually green. Be careful though: one in ten can be spicy.
Most often you will find recipes for blistered or grilled shishitos. Their thin skin makes them perfect for this high heat cooking method. We love the simplicity of this recipe and hope you do too!
