This is a quick and delicious recipe for blistered shishito peppers seasoned with a little soy sauce and sesame oil. 


  • 8oz (1/2 pound) shishito peppers
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce or liquid amino for gluten-free
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add the shishito peppers.
  2. Occasionally toss the peppers until they start blistering and getting charred. 
  3. Turn the heat off, add the sesame oil and vigorously shake the skillet so all the peppers are coated with the oil. 
  4. Add the soy sauce and repeat the same step.

Blistered shishito peppers taste best fresh out of the pan, but they can be refrigerated for up to 2 days, in an airtight storage container.
