  • Yield: 2 servings 1x


A simple way to cook shishito peppers in the warm days of summer. Blistered shishito peppers are great for a simple summer appetizer or snack.



1 lb of shishito peppers 

1 tbsp coconut oil 

a good pinch or two of course sea salt

**Optional: addition of Thai Basil or Lemon Zest but it is not necessary to enjoy these guys! ***


  1. Heat pan on high heat. Once the pan is hot add the oil and turn down the heat to medium
  2. Add in the whole shishito peppers no need to remove tops
  3. Keep heat consistent while you leave them in a flat layer and leave undisturbed for 2-4 minutes until blistered.
  4. Flip them and let them blister on other side for 2-4 minutes
  5. Remove from heat and toss with course sea salt to taste.
  6. ENJOY!


You can easily do tons of these at a time this can be adjusted to accommodate. You basically are just sautéing them and giving them enough time to fry on one side.
