This mild Japanese pepper makes a simple sauteed snack.
Have you heard of the shishito pepper yet? It's the Japanese cousin to the more well-known padrón pepper. Like padróns, shishitos are mild, but compared to its Spanish counterpart, there's an even smaller chance of coming across a spicy one (usually about 1 in 10). You can usually spot these at your local farmers market in the summer, and they're growing in popularity at fancy restaurants. But after seeing this how simple this recipe is, you'll be inspired to make them at home yourself!
Prep time: 5 minutes
(includes 1/4 teaspoon salt)
