My sister once told me how wonderful Japanese shishito peppers are so when I saw a bag of them at Trader’s Joe’s this week I grabbed them. After talking to my sister, I decided to prepare them like she did. Simply sautéed in some olive oil until tender then tossed with some Himalayan pink salt, lime zest, and lime juice. That’s it. They were AMAZING! These peppers are mild in heat but so very flavorful. My son didn’t try them but my daughter did and said they were good. My husband and I both gobbled them up and we both thought they were delicious.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the shishito peppers to the skillet and sauté, tossing frequently, until blistered and tender, about 10-12 minutes. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with Himalayan pink salt, lime zest and juice from half a lime. Toss until evenly coated. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
