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.
