Description

The Shishito is a Japanese pepper. This mildly spicy, green pepper has a firm and savory flavor. In Japanese, the name Shishito refers to "head of the Lion," which the bottom of the pepper resembles. In terms of its use in cooking, it resembles the Pimientos de Padron, but in combination with typical Japanese dishes. They are traditionally roasted in the pan with some sesame oil and soy sauce. They are also delicious for teppanyaki, on a skewer with yakitori or in a batter and deep-fried as tempura.

Recipe
1. Rinse the peppers and dry them well. Put them in a mixing bowl, add the olive oil/sesame oil and stir.
2. Preheat the skillet; set a large (cast iron) skillet over medium-high heat. Let heat for about 2 minutes, or until the pan just begins to smoke.
3. Carefully place the Shishito peppers in a single layer in the skillet and sear for 2 to 3 minutes, or until charred and browned. Use tongs to flip them over and fry the other side until they are also blanched, about 2 more minutes.
4. Place the grilled peppers on a plate or platter and season with salt and soy sauce.
Can also be prepared in the oven or on the BBQ.
