Serving Size: Serves 4-6 Ingredients
  • 1/3 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 Teaspoon Hot Sauce (or more/less to taste)
  • 10 oz Shishito Peppers
  • 1 Teaspoon Canola Oil
  • 1 1/2 tsps Lemon Juice (fresh)
  • 1 Teaspoon Sesame Seeds
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Fleur de Sel
  • For the Aioli - Combine the Mayonnaise and Hot Sauce until fully incorporated. Taste for seasoning and desired spice level. Set Aside.
  • In a 10" Cast Iron Skillet, over a medium high heat, add in your shishito peppers and canola oil and toss together. Cook the shishito peppers, tossing every so often, until all sides start to char. Monitor your heat to make sure the pan isn't too hot or too cold.
  • Once all the shishito peppers have a decent char on them (about 7 minutes of cooking), pour the contents of the cast iron into a large bowl. Add into the bowl your lemon juice, sesame seeds and fleur de sel and toss together.
  • Serve the shishito peppers immediately with the aioli.
