Shishito Peppers!

Image
A couple of years ago we were sitting at the bar in one of our favorite restaurants Cookshop, and we saw someone eating a bowl of peppers. Intrigued, we ordered some, and it was love at first bite! Since then I order them from anywhere that has them on the menu. Most recently and maybe my favorite was at another one of our favorite spots, B.E.S.
I am not sure how neither P2 or myself had gone our whole lives without these little peppers is beyond either of us!
They are called Shishito Peppers and they originate from Japan. A whole other reason to love our friends over there!
They have lots of vitamins A and C, a little heat, and lots of flavor. Not to mention they are the easiest things to cook. Anyone who can turn the stove on and make them.
Here is what I do;
Heat up a grill pan super hot.
While that is heating up, lightly coat the peppers with olive oil and a little salt.
When the pan is hot, put the peppers on and just let them go.

Move them around a bit as they cook to make sure …
