Shashito Peppers with Toasted Sesame & Smoked Salt

Anytime I see shashito peppers on a menu at a restaurant, I always order them. I don't see them everywhere so it's special when I do. I've never thought to make them at home until I found them fresh in the produce section and though I'd give them a try. They are CRAZY easy to make and taste just as good as when I get them at restaurants. They are a perfect little tapa to serve with cocktails or wine night with friends where cooking isn't the main focus. It takes minutes to saute and they are a crowd-wower. Perfect little snack to offer guests when you want to spend less time in the kitchen.


Shashito Peppers with Toasted Sesame & Smoked Shaved Salt
  • 1 pint fresh shashito peppers
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 2 tsp smoked salt flakes
In a large non-stick fry pan, heat up olive oil and add shashito peppers, sesame seeds and pinch kosher salt. Saute on high heat for 5 - 10 minutes and keep tossing until all sides are lightly brown. Top with smoked salt or specialty salt of choose. You can eat the whole pepper besides the stem.
