This is a simple side dish or starter that anyone can make. Shishito peppers are these great little green chile peppers that are somewhat mild with the exception that about 1 in 10 are hot. These peppers are great to served just blistered with a simple sauce. In this case I used my
as the sauce and finished with a little fried garlic. Some have said to pierce the skin of the pepper to allow the hot air to escape when cooking but I haven't felt that necessary in my experience cooking these peppers.
Simple recipe here.
1/2 lb of shishito peppers
1/4 cup of Judd's all natural Miso and Black Garlic Dressing/Marinade
2 tbsp of fried garlic
2 tbsp of sesame oil
pinch of salt
In a very hot saute pan or wok add 2 tbsp of sesame oil. Place the peppers in the pan and cook the peppers for 1 to 2 minutes so there skin starts to blister and brown. Then Add the Miso Dressing and cook for 1 minute. Season with a pinch of salt and place into a serving dish. Garnish with fried garlic and some lime wedges on the side. Eat immediately and enjoy!
