Shishito Peppers with Orange & Soy

Shishito Peppers with Orange & Soy

Shishito peppers are a cinch to throw together, and eating them is like playing a game of less-lethal Russian Roulette—about one in every ten is fiery-hot. This particular recipe is a great accompaniment to a very cold Japanese lager. 

  • 1 lb shishito peppers
  • 1 tbs neutral oil - we like grapeseed oil
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbs soy sauce, try this one!
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs rice vinegar
  • juice + zest of one orange
  • sesame seeds for garnish

Mix together soy, honey, vinegar, and orange juice - set aside. Heat grape seed and sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When oil starts to shimmer, add shishito peppers and cook for 3-4 minutes - tossing occasionally, until the peppers are soft and slightly blistered. Add the soy-orange mixture and cook for an additional 30 seconds on high heat. Remove from heat - garnish with orange zest and sesame seeds.
