  • 1 Tbsp canola vegetable, or grape seed oil (use a light oil that has a high smoke point)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 lb shisito peppers
  • 2 small cloves of garlic minced
  • ½ Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce can substitute coconut aminos, plus more for serving
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp kosher salt


  • Heat grape seed and sesame oil over high heat in a large cast iron or heavy bottom skillet until very hot, but not smoking. Add shisito peppers and cook, stirring often, until blistered on all sides. This can take 5-10 minutes depending on how hot your pan is. You're looking for the peppers to be tender, but not mushy.
  • When the peppers are almost there, add garlic, ½ Tbsp soy sauce, and sesame seeds. Cook until garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds then remove from heat. Sprinkle with kosher salt, then serve immediately with additional soy sauce for dipping.
