Plant-based alternative to junk food
I’ve been trying my best to stay away from junk food, and it has been important to me to find plant-based snacks that satisfy all my junk food cravings. The salty finish on these shishito peppers does just that, and I feel great about making the healthy choice!
Step by step blistered shishito peppers
You’ll love how easy it is to make these blistered shishito peppers. With these 4 ingredients, you’ll have your new favorite plant-based snack!
First, add your oil to a heavy-bottom pan and heat over medium heat. Add your garlic and cook until fragrant. This garlic-infused oil is going to be the most delicious bath for your shishito peppers.
Remove the garlic and add the peppers. Removing the garlic is important because it will burn if you don’t. You want to infuse the oil with garlic, not to burn the garlic.
Let them blister/char on all sides. Don’t let the char scare you; the light green peppers are not as tasty as the charred peppers! Use a splatter screen if you need to; it’s a great way to keep your stove from getting splattered in oil.
Once charred, add them to your serving dish and finish with Morton Coarse Sea Salt for that salty, crunchy finish. I really love how the salt helps to bring out the flavor in the peppers. The easy-to-shake lid makes finishing with this coarse sea salt super easy. I found the new packaging in the spice aisle at Albertsons.
