Pan Roasted Shishito Peppers

Posted by terrepruitt on February 5, 2018

This post is quite out of season.  Since I received the peppers in August, I am thinking they are a summer veggie, but I came across my pictures of peppers and was wondering about them. You may have heard (by way of reading) that years ago, I decided to get a delivery of an organic produce box. I decided to get the box so that I would get produce delivered to me that I might not – ok, never, that I would never buy. And it worked . . . in the beginning. In the first few years I would sometimes get something I didn’t know what to do with. And that would lead to me trying something new. Way back in the beginning (I actually didn’t realize it had been so long), I received Shishito peppers. I did not know what to do with them. So I did my normal. I roasted them. Although instead of using the oven I pan roasted them.

Not really a recipe, but:

Heat the oil in a pan. Put the pepper in the pan. Saute/roast them until they are slightly browned. Salt them, to taste.

Serve.

They were good, but not something I would crave or need to make again. They are not hot. If you have ever read any of my recipe posts you know I don’t like spicy hot. And these have no heat at all. Although they say that every once in a while there will be one with heat.

According to myfitnesspal 1/2 cup of cooked peppers has

100 Calories and no fat
50 mg of sodium and 15 g of carb
10 g of sugar and 5 g of protein
LOTS of vitamin C 170% and 80% Vitamin A

No fiber and pretty much nothing else.

Have you every heard of them? Do you cook with them? Do you cook them? How do you prepare Shishito Peppers?

    I read that 1 in 10 shishito peppers are hot. I used to buy them at Trader Joe’s during the season because R and I like them. Once I got a bag where 25-30% were hot and (funnily enough because R and I like spicy and H doesn’t) H kept getting the spicy ones despite me telling them they weren’t supposed to be hot so I don’t get them as often anymore.
