Shishito Peppers

Serves 4-6

The perfect bite for your next party!  These peppers aren’t overly spicy; they’re really quite mild and tasty.  You can dress shishito peppers up a variety of ways, but we think they are best blistered in a frying pan with some olive oil, Savor, chili flakes, then finished with a squeeze of fresh lemon.  Serve them as an appetizer, enjoy them as a pre-meal snack, or fry up a few whenever you pop a top.  They’re best paired with something cool to drink and something sweet and spicy to dip them in.


  • 6 oz shishito peppers
  • 2 oz extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of Savor All-Purpose Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon of chili flakes
  • 1 fresh lemon for finishing and garnish


  • Heat a large frying pan at medium heat.  When warm add olive oil and warm the oil just short of smoking
  • Add shishito peppers to pan and cook for 2-4 minutes until slightly brown/blistered.
  • Stir peppers and season with half of your salt and half of your chili flakes then continue cooking for another 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally until peppers soften slightly.
  • Place on serving plate then squeeze half of a lemon over the peppers.  Season with remaining salt and chili flakes to your preference.
  • Serve immediately


* Serving options:  include lemon wedges, Sriracha, sweet chili sauce or soy.
