Blistered Shishito Peppers

Blistered Shishito Peppers

It’s pepper season and Shishitos are showing up on menus all around town. They are one of our go to appetizers in the fall because they taste spectacular but are also very easy to make. The smokiness in the chipotle pepper lends itself nicely to grill parties or snacks by the campfire. There will be a couple in each pint that will have a little, not too much, heat in them but most are mild in spice.


Shishito peppers, as with other pepper varietals, contain a high amount of Vitamin C, E, and A. Those that have some heat also contain capsicum which is known for it’s antioxidant properties.
