O SHU …..but wait!
The Shishito is extremely well known in Japan and is one of the best, so called, ‘frying peppers’ that there is. It turns from green to red but is usually harvested green and tastes ever so slightly like asparagus. It can be eaten raw in a salad, stewed in soy sauce or, our favorite, fried in olive oil and salt. You just can’t stop eating them and if you Google it, you will find a huge amount of recipe’s for this one. This Shishito has no heat, BUT, strangely enough; about one in every twenty or so has a good kick of heat. No one knows why! One of the best there is. Just do it….
