The perfect afternoon salty snack to pair with a cocktail!
Course: Appetizer, Snack
Rinse off the shishito peppers, then pat them dry.
In a large mixing bowl, toss the peppers with the teaspoon of olive oil until all of the peppers are evenly coated.
Heat up the cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Wait until it's hot enough. You can test this by adding a drop of water and seeing if it will sizzle/evaporate.
Add the peppers to the pan. Let them sit for a minute.
Using a pair of tongs, turn the shishito peppers to a different side. Repeat this step every minute or so until the shishito peppers are charred ("blistered") on the outside. This should take about 10 minutes.
Remove to bowls and sprinkle with salt, then serve.
Each serving is about 1 cup of shishito peppers. You can multiply the recipe if you're making this for more people.
