Blistered Shishito Peppers

Blistered Shishito Peppers are a super quick and easy appetizer that requires nothing more than a hot pan, peppers, a pop of citrus, and some salt. Toss with some EVOO just before serving to avoid all that smokiness during the cooking process. Cast iron is the ideal pan to achieve a nice char. Blistered peppers can also be incorporated into all types of recipes that can use a little pepper kick. Blistered Shishito Peppers
