Shishito Peppers

Description: Shishito peppers are slender and wrinkly with thin-skins and a bright green color. Slightly sweet in taste with a delicate texture, they’re like potato chips, you can’t eat just one! About one out of every eight peppers is spicy.

Benefits: very good source of vitamin C.

How to eat: For cooking, a hole is poked in the pepper beforehand to keep expanding hot air from bursting the pepper. It may be skewered then broiled (grilled), or pan-fried in oil, stewed in a soy sauce– and dashi-based liquid, or simply eaten raw in a salad or as a condiment. It is thin-skinned and will blister and char easily compared with thicker-skinned varieties of peppers. Source: www.platingsandpairings.com
