Sautéed Sesame Soy Shishito Peppers

Sautéed Sesame Soy Shishito Peppers

I recently made some chicken and cashew lettuce wraps (recipe will post tomorrow) and paired them with a side dish of these sesame soy shishito peppers. These peppers are mild in heat but so very flavorful. I think the Asian flavors made these tasty peppers shine. Both my kids thought they were tasty and my husband and I enjoyed them too. These peppers are so affordable and delicious, as well as quick and easy to make, they would be perfect for your Super Bowl party!
