Blistered Shishito Peppers


What is better than blistered shishito peppers?  Shishito peppers are amazing to cook because they are so mild in spice (except for the occasional spicey one you may find.)  When blistered, they soften to a really great texture.  This recipe really packs an amazing flavor into these already delicious peppers.


This recipe is so amazing and full of such flavor.  I’ve added Teriyaki and soy sauce to this recipe which cooks with the peppers amazingly and adds such savoriness.  The lemons also add the perfect amount of zest.

This is a great side dish for a family/friend meal or a perfect at-home snack. 

Ways to pair this dish:

  • Avacado and cucumber sushi rolls
  • Zesty stirfry
  • Tofu in orange sauce
  • Ramen soup
