So Simple and yet so Good!

In my favorite well seasoned cast iron skillet, (you must use a heavy skillet) I poured a generous amount of grapeseed oil and turned the heat on medium-high to high. Grapeseed oil is best to use for frying or in this case blistering the Shishito peppers. It holds up so much better to the heat than olive oil. It takes about 6 to 8 minutes for the peppers to blister. I stirred them occasionally. When done to the desired blistering and color I generously sprinkled with Kosher salt.

I plated them, and then watched them disappear.

These peppers make a great snack or appetizer with drinks.
