Fried Shishito Peppers

Fried Shishito Peppers

Summer on the farm where I live is the best time of year simply because of all the delicious and easy to prepare veggies that are coming out of the garden. Protein definitely takes the back seat to plates of dry farmed tomatoes drizzled with olive oil and topped with fragrant basil and mozzarella cheese, simple cucumber salads, and rustic grilled summer squash. One of my favorite things is to fill up my cast iron skilled with little Shishito or Padron peppers and sauté until charred - so simple and good.



  1. Shishito or Padron pepper - as many as you want
