Grilled Shishito Peppers are flash cooked, or blistered, on a screaming hot grill pan for just a minute or so, and then served with a shower of salt or a small dish of soy sauce for a crazy delicious treat.
about 15-20 Shishito peppers per serving
oil for lightly coating the peppersI used sesame, you can use peanut, olive, or whatever you like
black sesame seeds or sea salt
tamari soy sauceponzu sauce, or fresh lemon juice
Toss the peppers in a little bit of oil to lightly coat them. I used sesame oil, but you can use olive, peanut, or whatever oil you like.
Set a grill pan or large skillet over medium high heat and let it heat up until nice and hot.
Put the peppers in and let them cook for about 5 minutes, until they are blistered and charred in parts. Shake the pan or toss them around every 30 seconds or so.
Remove from the pan and sprinkle with sesame seeds or salt.
Serve hot with a squeeze of lemon, or a light sauce.
