One my newest culinary obsessions is the Shishito Pepper. Our friends over at Greenflast Farms were the ones who introduced them to me. They were in our Famr Share box this past summer and my husband and I became infatuated with them. Shishito Peppers have are a super mild pepper with great flavor that when charred and tossed with a few bright ingredients (like lemon juice) are an addictive appetizer that everyone loves. Seriously…. Everyone …even my most picky relatives have found them irresistible.
If it’s the summertime, Shishito Peppers are also awesome when charred on the grill!
I like serving my Shishito Peppers with a little spicy aioli (aka mayonnaise mixed with some hot sauce) for a nice contrast in flavor.
The great thing about this appetizer is that it takes so little time to make…anytime we have a random guest show up at our house, this is the first thing I can make and put on the table in no time…. Plus it goes great with a nice glass of wine!
