Brave enough for a spicy Blistered Shishito Pepper?
Blistered Shishito Peppers are a snack best enjoyed with beer and more beer!

Ingredients: Instructions:
  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add peppers, and sauté about 5 minutes, or until peppers are blistered, with a bit of char.
  2. Remove peppers from heat. Toss with salt and pepper, serve with lime.

The shishito pepper is small and finger-long, slender, and thin-walled. Although it turns from green to red upon ripening, it is usually harvested while green. The name refers to the fact that the tip of the chili pepper (唐辛子tōgarashi) looks like the head of a lion (獅子shishi); in Japanese it is often abbreviated as shishitō.[citation needed]
