Sauteed Shishito Peppers With Lemon & Sea Salt

  12 rater(s)

In case you have been living under a rock, shishito peppers have become one of the most popular appetizers on restaurant menus. With a very mild heat that is complemented by the inherent sweetness, shishito peppers are able to hold assertive flavors like lemon and garlic.

  • Prep Time: 5m
  • Cook Time: 10m
  • Total Time: 15m


  • 1 lb shishito peppers
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • large metal or wooden skewers
  • juice from half of a small lemon
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt, or more to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Toss the shishito peppers with the olive oil in a large bowl.
  2. Warm a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add the peppers to the pan after 20-30 seconds.
  3. Saute the peppers, mixing every 30 seconds or so, until you see blister marks on the skins (about 5 minutes).
  4. During the last minute of cooking, add the lemon juice, sea salt, and black pepper and toss well. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
