Some may be spicy, some may not, but either way, these blistered peppers are simple to make and packed with flavor.
1 1/2 pounds shishito peppers
Vegetable oil, for coating
Salt and pepper
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon white sesame seeds
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
2 green onions, thinly sliced
Bring a large cast-iron skillet up to heat on medium high.
In a bowl, toss the peppers with a little vegetable oil and a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
Once the pan is hot, add the peppers and cook for 7 to 10 minutes. You want them to blister and turn a dark brownish-black color.
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, sesame oil, both kinds of sesame seeds and the green onions. Pour mixture over the peppers and toss. Remove from skillet and place on a plate. Eat immediately.
