Citrus Shishito Peppers
Recipe Type: Appetizer
  • Quart or more of Shishito peppers
  • Salt
  • Lemon slices (2-4)
  • Olive oil
  1. Wash your peppers thoroughly. While the peppers dry out a bit, place a sauté pan over medium to high heat (no oil).
  2. While your peppers are sitting in your colander, drizzle with a tiny bit of oil (think 1 teaspoon) and sprinkle with salt. Toss with your hands then dump into your pan (be cautious).
  3. Add some lemon slices and sear the peppers until they begin to blister. Keep tossing every few minutes.
  4. Once they look decently blistered remove from heat and place on a platter. Sprinkle with extra salt and a squeeze of more lemon juice. Serve and enjoy!
