VEGGIES: Blistered Shishito Peppers

IMG_1608One our favorite restaurants in Boston was a small tapas place down the block from our apartment, called Estragon. As I explained in further detail in my Beantown: The List post, they make some of the best vegetarian tapas, one of which is the Pimientos Shishitos. Shishito Peppers are not spicy and are served simply charred with a little bit of sea salt. They looked easy enough to replicate so I decided to try my hand at them as a side to some homemade vodka artichoke pizza. They were DELICIOUS and ridiculously easy.

Ingredients:

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Shishito Peppers (Trader Joe’s sells them in bags in the salad aisle)

Sea Salt

Directions:

1. Heat up a sauté pan. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil until shimmering.

2. Sauté the shishitos on high heat for 3-4 more minutes until blistered.

3. Remove from the heat and place in a bowl. Toss with a little sea salt and serve immediately.
