Blistered Shishito Peppers!

Another seasonal find people ask how to eat, cook and prepare is the Shishito Pepper! They smell spicy but the taste is very mild so they make for a ingredient to add a spicy aroma without an intense kick! Although there are tons of ways to eat and cook these little guys here is just one way that I will be trying this weekend since it takes only 5mins!!! Check it out!

A hot cast iron pan creates the perfect char for this bite-size pepper appetizer tossed with flavored salts.
  • 8 ounces shisito peppers
  • ½ lemon, sliced
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher or flavored salts


  1. Heat a large cast iron skillet over high heat until the pan is hot. Add the peppers to the hot skillet and cook the peppers, turning occasionally then add a few slices of lemon. Cook until the peppers become fragrant and begin to blister, and the nudge the lemons so they don't stick, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl and drizzle with a little olive oil plus a squeeze more lemon then sprinkle with flavored salts. Serve immediately.
