When we were in Orlando earlier this year, we tried shishito peppers at Emril's restaurant and loved them. But when we came back up to Minnesota we couldn't find them. Our local grocery stores didn't carry them. Thankfully Trader Joes came to the rescue!
All you need is extra-virgin olive oil, whole shishito peppers and sea salt
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Cook peppers, turning occasionally, until they begin to blister on all sides.
Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately.
Now be careful every now and then one of these babies can be hot!
The waiter at the restaurant told us to take just a nibble off the end of the pepper before taking a larger bite. We were very happy for this tip in the Trader Joe group. These ones had much more of a kick than the Orlando ones. None were the tears in the eyes hot but definitely kicky.
I have to say even with the kick this time, I would still make them again.
