What the heck are Shishito Peppers? These small, mild Japanese peppers are great for roasting, pan-frying and grilling. Their thin walls blister and char easily when roasted or grilled, taking on rich flavor that is delicious with coarse salt and lemon juice (my mouth is already watering). At The Real Food Academy, we love this simple way of broiling Shishito Peppers and usually plate them with a mild Tahini Sauce
. Don't forget to serve them right out of the oven, and offer your friends a cold one to sip while munching on them!
Broiled Shishito Peppers
Set your broiler to the highest setting.
Mix the peppers with the oil and the salt. Spread on baking sheet.
Place in broiler until the skin of the peppers starts going black.
Take them out of the broiler, place in a bowl or platter, drizzle the Tahini Sauce on top and enjoy while hot.
