Oh I crave these little things.. Shishito peppers are gorgeous green pops of flavor and so easy. They’re a two bite easy app and I love them with a cold crisp white wine.

Add them to a hot oiled cast iron pan, make sure they are spread out and have room to charr. Otherwise do in batches. It’s best to use a high smoke point oil like safflower, canola, or sunflower. Then toss around in the pan every few minutes, but let sides char a bit.

Add a generous sprinkle of flaky salt and pepper, toss in a cheese you love, these have an aged grated Manchego, a drizzle of hot honey (or regular honey) and black sesame seeds for a little crunch. It’s a great appetizer and versatile to what ever flavors you love!
