Buttery Soy Blistered Shishito Peppers

Buttery Soy Blistered Shishito Peppers - Ingredients
This is a new discovery for me. Last week, I checked out the new Glowbal restaurant on Georgia Street below the New Telus Garden Building in Vancouver. I had the opportunity to try out these little gems off the happy hour menu – the Blistered Padrón Peppers seasoned with shaved garlic, sherry vinegar, lemon. It was soo delicious! Russian Roulette with peppers, you never know when you would get a spicy one.

Since that day, these little green peppers have been on my mind, and when I spotted these Shishito Peppers at a local grocery store, I googled what they were. They are often used interchangeably with Padrón Peppers because Shishito peppers are often found in asian markets, whereas Padrón Peppers are more of a specialty item. As they are mostly mild, but on occasion, you will get a spicy one. So I quickly tossed a bag of these peppers into my basket and made my way to the front counter to complete my purchase.

So I have this bag of peppers, what now? I googled and saw some different recipes but nothing was similar to what I tasted. The infamous restaurant Nobu has been known to make these peppers, so I decided to try it out based on the descriptions from foodie reviews. And surprisingly, the ingredients worked. With some trial and error, I think I have it down.


So what you will need is:

2 Cups of Shishito Peppers, pierced with a skewer to prevent popping
1 Teaspoon Sesame Oil
13 grams of Salted Butter
2 Teaspoon of Light Soy Sauce
1 Teaspoon of Sweet Soy Sauce
Salt to taste
1 Tablespoon of Toasted Panko Crumbs
Prepare the peppers by rinsing them in water. Stems on or off is your preference.
Heat the sesame oil and butter until it is good and hot, but not smoking. Butter will sizzle and brown a bit.
