Roasted Japanese Shishito Peppers with Soy Sauce and Lime

Japanese shishito peppers are unique. Their size is similar to that of a medium carrot and they are quite thin. They are green and turn red when ripe. The strangest thing is that they are bittersweet. Not spicy at all! Actually 1 in 10 is spicy. This little pepper is super delicious and addictive. Since I discovered them, which was recent, I have been eating them as snacks. I like to enjoy them roasted, and my family and friends cannot believe that I am eating what to them seems like very hot chili. But after they try it, they love it! I am not exaggerating when I tell you that you will not be able to eat just one.

 

Ingredients:

  • two tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • one lb of shishito peppers
  • two teaspoons soy sauce
  • one  lime juice

Instructions:

1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the vegetable oil.

2. Add the shishito peppers and mix well so that they are covered with the oil.

4. Put the soy sauce on top and mix.

5. Squeeze the lime over the peppers and mix.

6. Remove from heat and serve. To enjoy!
