Sauteed Shishito Peppers

There is no recipe for this. I was looking for this peppers since so long, I lost my hope that I will find anywhere this delicious peppers. But no I was wrong. I found it in one of my favorite store Trader Joe's vegetable section. This goes perfectly with the drinks. Instead of munching snacks, you can bite in to this pepper and have sip of beer or any other alcoholic drink and you will love it. 

As per wiki - The pepper is small and finger-long, slender, and thin-walled. Although it turns from green to red upon ripening, it is usually harvested while green. The name refers to the fact that the tip of the chili pepper  looks like the head of a lion , and in Japanese it is often abbreviated as shishitō. 

Ingredients : 

15-20 Peppers
1/2 Tsp. Olive oil
As per taste coarse sea salt
Lime juice


Heat a pan, add olive oil and add the peppers.

Cook them over medium heat, tossing and turning frequently till they blister. 

Cook for 10 to 12 minutes until its charred from various places. 

When its done, sprinkle sea salt and lime juice and put it in a dish and serve hot.

You can hold it from the stem and eat the whole peppers. It won't bite you.
