I recently made some chicken and cashew lettuce wraps (recipe will post tomorrow) and paired them with a side dish of these sesame soy shishito peppers. These peppers are mild in heat but so very flavorful. I think the Asian flavors made these tasty peppers shine. Both my kids thought they were tasty and my husband and I enjoyed them too. These peppers are so affordable and delicious, as well as quick and easy to make, they would be perfect for your Super Bowl party!
How to Make Sautéed Sesame Soy Shishito Peppers
Heat the olive oil and sesame 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. Add the crushed red pepper flakes and minced garlic then cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds. Add the soy sauce and cook, stirring to coat the peppers evenly, for 1 minute. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with additional soy sauce on the side. Enjoy.
