Ingredients
  • 1 lb Shishito peppers
  • 2 tbsp oil (olive, avocado, safflower, sunflower, etc.)
  • Seasonings /garnishes of choice (This could include a drizzle of sesame oil, a squeeze of lemon or a bit of finely minced lemon zest, Maldon or kosher salt with freshly cracked pepper, sesame seeds, togarashi, or a finely minced clove of garlic or two.)
Instructions
For pan preparation
  1. Get oil hot over medium-high heat in a good sized cast-iron pan or other heavy pan that conducts heat well. This might have to be done in a couple of batches so as not to overcrowd peppers. Add peppers in a single layer (not piled up) and sauté until lightly blistered, turning a few times. Cook 5-8 minutes total. Add seasonings or garnishes toward the end of cooking time. Serve immediately.
For grill preparation
  1. Toss peppers in a bowl with the 2 tbsp of oil and any seasonings (salt, pepper, togarashi, or fresh garlic if using). Place peppers on grill grates over medium-high flames and cook until lightly blistered – 5-8 minutes total. Transfer to serving dish and sprinkle with any extra garnishes, if used (lemon juice or zest, sesame seeds, very light drizzle of sesame oil, etc.)
