Description 

 

The shishito pepper is a small, sweet Japanese pepper (about the size of a finger) with loads of flavor, but not a lot of heat.. Usually harvested when green, the shishito peppper is thin-skinned, which allows the skin to blister and char quickly and easily.

 

While generally very mild & sweet, every so often you'll encounter a rather spicy shishito pepper! (This just makes things more interesting.)

 

Cooking tips:

Puncture each pepper before cooking to vent rapidly expanding hot air that could cause the cooking pepper to burst. Shishito peppers are often pan-fried in oil to be eaten as an appetizer or served with drinks. They're also wonderful when skewered and grilled on the barbecue.
