The Shishito pepper is the Japanese version of the Padrón. Like the Padrón, they pack the spicy surprise. 90% of the time these japanese chilies are some of the mildest on the planet. And then there’s the one that bites. 1 in 10 peppers delivers an unexpected punch. Eating them is like playing the Japanese pepper roulette! It makes Shishito peppers as fun to eat as they are tasty. They are absolutely delicious just pan-fried in olive oil, with some sea salt, just like the spanish tapas pepper, the Padrón. The name refers to the fact that the tip of the chili pepper (唐辛子 tōgarashi) looks like the head of a lion (獅子 shishi). Enjoy this japanese delicacy by growing the peppers yourself.
