Seared Shishito Peppers
Servings: 8 people
These seared shishito peppers really might be the perfect finger party food appetizer. So delicious and so simple to make. They are mild (well, most of them are) and so flavorful. Delicious!
- 2 tbsp oil vegetable, olive or sesame
- 1 shallot minced (optional)
- 12 oz. shishito peppers
- Zest 1 lime
- Coarse sea salt to taste
Heat the oil over medium heat.
Saute the shallots until soft, about 2 minutes.
Toss in the peppers, and cook, stirring occasionally.
After the pepper skins have started to blister slightly, add a pinch of the lime zest and a pinch of the sea salt. Stir to incorporate.
Once tender and lightly blistered (about 8 - 10 minutes), remove from heat.
Transfer to serving platter and garnish with a little more lime zest and sea salt (to taste).
