Aaron Munzer of Plowbreak Farm grills peppers at the Co-op

Roasted shishito peppers are an easy, crowd-pleasing appetizer. Savory, salty, and occasionally spicy, it’s hard to stop at just one!


1 pint shishito peppers
2-4 Tbsp olive oil
coarse sea salt


Lightly toss the peppers with the olive oil and season them with sea salt.

Set up the grill for direct grilling and preheat it to high.

When ready to grill, brush and oil the grill grate. Arrange the peppers on the hot grate.

Grill the peppers until sizzling and browned on both sides, 5 minutes per side. Serve the peppers hot off the grill with extra salt on the side for sprinkling.
