Apparently the latest delicacy in gourmet restaurants is shishito peppers. I've never had them but decided to give them a try. I found these at the farmer's market on Saturday.
I was going to grill them outside but the wasps were buzzing around so I decided to use my cast iron frying pan. Supposedly one in ten is a hot pepper so I grilled the green ones first. Gary said he got one hot green pepper.
Then I tried the red ones because the green ones were so good. Two in ten were hot in this batch but they were delicious.
I made a dipping sauce of yogurt, lemon, garlic, and dijon mustard. These are a great appetizer. Brush with olive oil or sesame oil and grill, delicious. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
