This just may be my new favorite appetizer/side dish. I have heard talk about these amazing little beauties, but I had yet to try them, until I made them today. All I can say, is why have I waited so long? Shishito peppers are now readily available in most local grocery stores. Looks for ones that are bright green and about three to five inches in length. I found these from Bailey Farms at my local Harris Teeter.

The best thing about this recipe is that they are done in less than ten minutes! Really no prep, except for the Sriracha mayo…which takes under a minute!

Mix the ingredients for the Sriracha mayo in bowl and reserve. You really need a cast iron pan for this recipe…click here for the one I used from Lodge. A non-stick pan would do in a pinch. Heat two tablespoons of the olive oil in the pan on medium-high. Work in two batches. Add peppers to hot pan in one single layer. Allow the peppers to blister on one side before you touch.

This will take about a minute. Turn peppers to continue blistering on all sides. You may want to turn the overhead fan. Blistering can create smoke. Remove peppers from pan when all sides have blistered, and are still just a touch firm. Nobody wants a wilted pepper! 🌶 Add another tablespoon of the olive oil to the pan and continue blistering the remaining peppers. Sprinkle with flake salt. I love this one from Falksalt. Serve the Shishito Peppers alongside the Sriracha Mayo! Can be served immediately, or enjoyed later! ENJOY!!!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth!
