Charred Shishito Peppers with Sesame

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4 to 6 as a first course

These peppers are seasoned with gomasio, a Japanese condiment of toasted sesame seeds and salt. Its nutty crunch is the perfect complement to the smoky-sweet peppers. Sprinkle extra gomasio on salad or popcorn.

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 Tbs. toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. granulated garlic
  • Coarse sea salt
  • 2 tsp. grapeseed or canola oil
  • 8 oz. shishito peppers
  • 1 Tbs. Asian sesame oil; more to taste

Preparation

  • In a mortar and pestle, pound the sesame seeds and granulated garlic with 1/2 Tbs. of salt until coarsely crushed. Alternatively, pulse in a small food processor. Set aside.
  • In a 12-inch cast-iron or other heavy-duty skillet, heat the oil on medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the peppers and ¬†cook, undisturbed, until they begin to char in places, 1 to 1-1/2 minutes. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 1 to 1-1/2 minutes.
  • Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a serving platter, drizzle with the sesame oil, sprinkle with about 2 tsp. of the sesame salt, and serve.
