Shishito peppers are best when they’re blistered! Cook these mild peppers in a hot skillet, then sprinkle with salt. Bet you can’t eat just one!


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 ounces shishito peppers
  • Kosher salt or flaky sea salt


  1. Heat the olive oil in heavy saute pan or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the peppers in a single layer. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes without stirring, until blistered.
  2. Use tongs to flip the peppers and cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Remove the peppers from the pan and sprinkle several pinches of kosher salt or flaky sea salt, to taste.
