  • Shishito peppers -- however many you have⁠
  • Enough olive oil to lightly coat⁠
  • Flaky salt like sea salt⁠


  • Heat a heavy bottomed pan over medium high heat for about 10 minutes -- you want the pan hot⁠
  • While the pan is heating, wash and pat dry your peppers⁠
  • Place them in a bowl and drizzle with enough olive oil to coat all the peppers when tossed. You want a light coat of oil on each of the peppers⁠
  • When the pan is ready, add the peppers and let them sit for at least a minute. ⁠
  • Stir the peppers every 1 - 2 minutes to be sure they cook evenly.⁠
  • Cook until the peppers are tender and showing blisters and charred spots and peppers are. It should take about 10 minutes, give or take. ⁠
  • Move to a serving plate and sprinkle generously with flaky salt⁠
  • Eat while warm. ⁠
