Change things up at dinner time with these grilled shishito peppers. They might just become your new favorite side dish. These are great with grilled steak or salmon. Careful, 1 in 10 peppers are hot!
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- ½ teaspoon finely grated ginger
- ½ teaspoon grated garlic
- 8 ounces shishito peppers, rinsed
- salt to taste
Whisk together sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic in a large bowl. Add shishito peppers and toss to combine. Let marinate for 15 to 20 minutes, tossing occasionally.
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and heat a grill pan.
Remove peppers from marinade, letting excess marinade drip back into the bowl. Place peppers on the grill pan and cook, tossing every 1 to 2 minutes, until evenly charred, 5 to 7 minutes. Return peppers to bowl with marinade and toss. Sprinkle with salt, if desired, and serve.
