Sauteed Shishito Peppers

Not much of a recipe here as these are so easy to make. If you can get your hands on some fresh ones at the farmers market they are a real end of summer treat.

Sauteed Shishito Peppers


4-6 servings


1-2 tbl toasted sesame oil (or a flavorless oil such as grapeseed or safflower)

1/2 lb shishito peppers

1-2 tsp kosher or flakey salt


Heat the oil in a large cast iron or heavy saute pan until almost smoking.

Put shishitos into the pan in a single layer. If you have something heavyish to place on top of them, like a smaller saute pan or a tea kettle, this will help blister more of the pepper surface.

Let cook 2-3 minutes, toss and cook another minute.

Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately.
