Friday Night Snack Time: Blackened Shishito Peppers with Smoked Sea Salt

20130510-183621.jpg

I love these crispy salty bite size peppers! You will usually find them on Japanese and Spanish menus as a little snack to enjoy with beer (for example).
They are super easy to make and are much healthier than a bag of potato chips. So give them a try!

These peppers, as all peppers, are extremely high in Vitamin C.
Something that is quite fun and interesting about these peppers is: generally they are sweet, however about 1 in 10 is spicy. Russian Roulette with your snack! Ha! Well they aren’t that spicy but they do have a nice kick when you find that one.

Ingredients:

10-12 Shishito peppers, washed, left whole
Pinch of really good quality sea salt, I like the smoked variety from Maldon.
1 tbsp of olive oil

Instructions:

Over medium high heat in a pan, add the olive oil.

After about a minute add in the Shishito peppers.

Toss around after about a minute, so you get all sides of the pepper. You want the skin to turn a light brown and start crisping. This should take about 4-5 min.

Just before you are about to take them off, sprinkle them with a pinch of sea salt.

Pour into a bowl and let cool for a minute before serving.

Snacking on veggies! I love it! πŸ™‚
