Blistered Shishito Peppers with Yakitori Dipping Sauce

Here is a really easy and very tasty recipe idea! You can make these as an appetizer for your next gathering. These peppers are fantastic to munch on and every once in a while you will find one that is very hot!

Here is what you need:

Cast iron skillet

Shishito peppers, mine came in a package of around 30-40 (28 oz.)

Olive oil

Original yakitori sauce

Sour cream

Here is what you’ll do:

Mix equal amounts of sour cream and original yakitori sauce. I used 3 tablespoons of each. Combine and mix until smooth, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate (30 minutes) until ready to use. This also allows the flavors to meld together. Next, rinse shishito peppers and pat dry, then lightly coat with olive oil. Heat cast iron skillet until very hot (drop of water dances and disappears), place a handful of peppers into skillet and gently toss and turn until peppers start to blister and get black spots, 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat and continue until all peppers have been blistered. Serve immediately with dipping sauce. You may also sprinkle with sea salt, if desired.
