I've read about the greatness of shishito peppers and finally found them recently at Central Market. The recipe is simple: Rinse and dry the peppers. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, then add a little olive oil. Add the peppers and saute until they're blistery all over. Pour into a serving dish and sprinkle with sea salt or kosher salt. So simple ... so good!
p.s. These pretty peppers commanded a pretty penny at Central Market, and while they're well worth the price, I'm a big fan of finding good food at a bargain price. Well, I've found the same peppers a couple of times now at H Mart here in Carrollton. They were labeled only as "sweet pepper" and were very inexpensive. It always pays to examine the offerings at the ethnic markets.
