Sautéed Shishito Peppers with Himalayan Salt and Lime

Sautéed Shishito Peppers with Himalayan Salt and Lime

My sister once told me how wonderful Japanese shishito peppers are so when I saw a bag of them at Trader’s Joe’s this week I grabbed them. After talking to my sister, I decided to prepare them as she did. Simply sautéed in some olive oil until tender then tossed with some Himalayan pink salt, lime zest, and lime juice. That’s it. They were AMAZING! These peppers are mild in heat but so very flavorful. My son didn’t try them but my daughter did and said they were good. My husband and I both gobbled them up and we both thought they were delicious.

  1. I’ve been seeing shishito peppers all over the blog world lately and yours is another post that has me seriously wanting to make them!!

  2. i’ve never noticed that particular type of pepper at my store, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t there–i’ll be on the lookout! i think the simple preparation sounds wonderful!

    I have never heard of these peppers! I hope I can find them in my TJ’s, because they look and sound delicious!

  4. Shishito peppers are easy to grow. They’ll even grow in a pot if it’s large enough. And please believe me, one plant is all you need, they’re so prolific! Odd thing about them is that maybe one individual pepper out of 20 or 25 from a single plant will have some heat to it, not enough to bother, but definitely warm on the tongue.

  5. I prepare long Italian peppers in a similar way. They taste so good. I have never seen these Japanese peppers, but the way you prepared them looks delicious.
