Blistered Shishito Peppers

By Marge Perry & David Bonom
Not only do shishito peppers make a tasty nibble to serve with drinks or before you sit down for dinner, they are also a lot of fun: it is said that 1 in 20 of the peppers is spicy hot, although we can’t verify the exact proportion in any given batch.


    • ground black pepper
    • olive oil
    • Sea salt
    • shishito peppers


    1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large Anolon Vesta enameled cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until very hot. Add about half the peppers, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper
