A few years ago, while out to dinner with a couple girlfriends at LoLo, I saw “blistered shishito peppers” on the menu. The menu listing was not very descriptive, which immediately had me on my phone searching about this pepper. I hadn’t heard of this variety before, and of course I was curious!

Well it turns out that I pretty much fell in love with those shishitos, right on the spot. They were fresh and flavorful, and so much fun!

Ever since that time, when I see these peppers at the store, I grab some for a quick appetizer at home. This Blistered Shishito Peppers recipe couldn’t be any easier, and only takes a few ingredients. It’s a great way to add some tasty fun to a meal, one of the easiest appetizers you’ll ever make!

Freshly picked shishito peppers will last in the fridge for around 10-14 days. Once the peppers become soft, they are starting to go bad. Use them up right away at this point.

For best results, store the shishito peppers in the crispy and uncovered. Never store them in plastic containers or bags, because air will be trapped inside and they will begin to spoil rather quickly."

If you can’t eat all the peppers up fast enough, you can also dice them into small pieces and store them in the freezer. Place the peppers in an airtight container or freezer bag.

They should last anywhere from 10-12 months. If you notice them becoming freezer burnt, the flavor will be altered, but they are still edible. Frozen shishito peppers are fantastic in soups, tacos, and other recipes.

Stovetop Shishito Peppers

This is the quickest and easiest way to cook up shishito peppers that I found. When you cook them, you want to make sure that you’re not over stuffing the skillet. Give them enough room that they can all cook and don’t stack any peppers on top of each other. Following that simple rule will ensure that you’re not putting too many into the skillet at once. If there’s enough room for all the peppers to lay flat in the skillet, then there’s enough room for them to cook properly.

You should cook them in a little oil as well. You don’t need a lot- just enough to lightly coat each of the peppers.

I’m going to show you how to cook sesame peppers in a quick and easy way that anyone can do.

Before you start cooking with the peppers, you should wash them and then pat them dry. You want to make sure there’s no water on them before you start cooking them up.

To oil the peppers, you should toss them in oil rather than just throwing them into a pan that has oil in it. This ensures the oil gets into all the little crevices of the peppers. This helps you control the amount of oil in the pan as well too.

Add your oiled up peppers to the pan and let them cook for about a minute before you start stirring them. This lets them get a nice char on the outside. Add in your sesame seeds as well, and you can stir the peppers around with the seeds to coat. They should cook for about 10 minutes together and will probably make popping sounds as they cook. They should have some blisters on them when they are well cooked. That’s all there is to this simple dish and it’s a great way to start out trying the peppers for yourself to see if you like the flavor and to experience cooking them up on your own.

What is a shishito pepper?

Shishito peppers are a pepper much like a green or red pepper that is native to Eastern Asia, specifically Japan. Their flavour is milder and sweeter than a green pepper and has a bit of a citrus note.

One of the things that make shishito peppers so fun to eat is that although for the most part they have a pretty mild spice there is usually one or two in the bunch that are a fair bit spicier than the others. Not as spicy as say, a jalapeno, but spicy enough to notice the change in flavour.

I had yet to taste one of these phantom spicy peppers until today! This batch of shishito peppers I finally had a spicy one!

Blistered Shishito peppers are usually stir-fried in a wok or skillet. Since you’re using less oil in the air fryer, these are much healthier, less messy and so easy!

I love using my air fryer for veggies! I make everything from zucchini, to asparagus, broccoli and more. These peppers are always such a great treat.

Have you tried shishito peppers? I order them at one of my favorite restaurants all the time as an appetizer, but I also make them from scratch all the time, because they are so stinking easy! I buy them at Trader Joe’s, they come bagged but many farmers markets and supermarkets also carry them.

Less than ten (10) minutes to make, this easy recipe uses just 4 (four) ingredients – shishito peppers, olive oil, salt and lemon wedges for squeezing over the top. They come out charred and blistered on the edges, perfect as an appetizer or snack.

Blistered Shishito Peppers

I’m so excited to be working with my friends at Amber Waves Farm in Amagansett, New York this summer. The farm grows organic vegetables, fruit, flowers, and wheat and over the last few years I have loved experimenting with the different fruits and veggies that show up in the CSA box each week. This year, Amber Waves opened a beautiful new farm store, and to celebrate, I’ll be sharing recipes inspired by what’s in season and available at the farm all summer long. Wherever you live, I hope you’ll find inspiration to cook seasonally, eat locally, and explore delicious new ways eat your way through the summer!

If you’ve come across shishito peppers, it’s likely been on a restaurant menu. Over the last couple years they seem to be popping up everywhere, and for good reason. Pan-roasted, they’re the perfect salty bite to have with cocktails. If you haven’t heard of them, be on the lookout- they’re increasingly available at farmer’s markets and supermarkets – Trader Joe’s even carries them now. Shishitos are generally mild in heat, but the occasional pepper (1 out of 10, or so the legend goes) packs a punch- a spicy surprise for a few lucky guests.

While restaurants prepare shishitos with all kinds of dipping sauces and toppings, the peppers can get lost under all those flavors. I like to make them simply at home, with a tablespoon of toasted sesame oil, a big pinch of sea salt, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. They take all of ten minutes to cook and with only four ingredients, they’re one of the easiest ways to start your dinner with a simple, seasonal dish.
