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.

This has become a go-to side dish we make with any Asian dishes on the menu. It is so easy, so delicious and, even though we live in Mexico we are able to find these beauties at our local organic market. If only I could find bok choy...
Delicious and super simple! We were surprised that the shishito peppers we got were spicy (normally they are mostly not, or all not), so that didn't quite go with the sesame salt. But we tried it again with non spicy peppers, and it was delicious. Then I would recommend not blackening too much, because that flavor will overwhelm the sesame taste.
