Sweet Soy Sauce Shishito Peppers

Sweet Soy Sauce Shishito Peppers


Add Shishito Peppers to the list of things I never thought I'd like. Now I crave them! Thanks to my dear friend Eric who introduced me to these mild delicious peppers when I was visiting him in Nashville. I first had a different version of these at Tavern and instantly fell in love. (If you're ever in Nashville head over to Midtown and find Tavern and order their Shishito Peppers and then go ahead and thank me for changing your life). I seriously craved them constantly after my trip and finally found a place in KC to get Shishito Peppers, Ra Sushi. Who knew this was a popular appetizer on sushi restaurant menus?! After seeing these at my local grocery store I grabbed several bags and got home and started working on recipes. I landed on this Sweet Soy Sauce version first and then made a spicy chipotle butter version as well, that is also to die for and will be featured soon!

Sweet Soy Sauce Shishito Peppers

-1/2 lb Shishito Peppers

-1/8 c Soy Sauce

-1 tsp Honey

-1/2 Lime (juiced) optional

-1/2 tsp Fresh Ginger (zested)

-1 T salted butter

-1/8 C Panko Breadcrumbs

-Flake Salt

In a large skillet roast peppers on medium heat for about 5 minutes. In a bowl mix soy sauce, honey, lime juice and ginger. (I've made this recipe both with and without lime juice, If you really like citrus flavors add it, if not I recommend leaving out the lime juice as it makes this peppers pretty lime tasting). Add mixture to peppers in skillet rotating regularly for even cooking. Cook for 5 more minutes or until sauce starts to thicken and coat peppers. 

In a separate smaller melt butter over medium heat. Once melted add Panko Breadcrumbs and roast until slightly browned. (This takes only a few minutes so watch carefully!) My first batch I completely burned and had to start over. Oops!

Once peppers are cooked thoroughly until desired doneness dump peppers and sauce into a shallow bowl. Top with breadcrumbs and a few pinches of flake salt. 

Have you ever tried these delicious peppers? Don't let the name fool you, they're extremely mild. Only about 1 in 10 has a bit of a kick! Can't wait to hear what you think of these.
