Blistered Shishito Pepper Recipe with Sriracha Crema
Blistering shishito peppers and serving them with a sriracha crema is a unique way to prepare these mild-flavored peppers.
Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:10 minutes
Total Time:15 minutes
Yield:Serves 4 to 6 1x
2–3 cups fresh shishito peppers
2 tsp olive oil
1 lime, zested, and quartered
salt and pepper
1 cup sour cream
2 tbsp sriracha
Toss shishito peppers in olive oil, then preheat your skillet to medium-high heat.
In the meantime, while your skillet heats, mix together your sour cream, sriracha, and the zest from your lime and set aside.
Once the skillet is hot, drop your shishito peppers in the skillet and let cook for 5-10 minutes, trying not to move around too much so that you get the blistered effect. You could also broil them in the oven for about 5 minutes if you want to go that route.
When done, drizzle with about a teaspoon of juice from your lime, and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Serve next to your sriracha crema, dip, and enjoy!
