Sesame Sautéed Shishito Peppers
These easy blistered shishito peppers will be your new favorite summer snack. The peppers are sautéed in toasted sesame oil for a nutty, sometimes spicy appetizer.
- 2 cups smallish shishito peppers whole
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
- coarse salt to taste
Wash and dry the shishito peppers. (Seriously, for your safety, don't forget to dry the peppers.)
Heat the sesame oil in a medium skillet over high heat just until hot.
Add the peppers - in batches if needed. Cook 2 minutes on high, flip and cook another 2 minutes or until the skins are blistered.
Plate. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Enjoy warm. Hold the pepper by the stem for easy snacking!
