We just blister them in a pan with a little bit of oil and then try to convince ourselves to let them cool down enough that we don't burn our mouths. They're even better with a pile of bonito flakes on top.
I get them at the Japanese market for pennies. I was there this week and they still had them, fingers crossed they stay all year.
Oh yum. I might need to make a run to the store!ReplyDelete
mmmm ... Sounds good and is very interesting. I'm a big fan of peppers but have never tried this particular variety nor this method of preparing them. You've opened my eyes to something new to try!ReplyDelete
I love these peppers! I'll have to check out a japanese market.ReplyDelete
where is the japanese market!!!???ReplyDelete
We usually go to Marukai, which has locations all over. The other big chain around here is Mitsuwa. Both are great!Delete
Do you just eat them straight up or do you add them to something? Also, how spicy are they? Have NEVER heard of them!ReplyDelete
We just eat them! They aren't very spicy although every once in a while you get a hot one.Delete
A lot of Japanese restaurants will have these on the menu as an appetizer, so if you want to give them a try you can probably track them down easily!
OMG so i heard that they got spicier toward the end of the season. just like madrons? the last batch i had HURT but i could not stop myself. it is sick. really. this was months ago. so i was surprised to see them at the market yesterday. but i was too afraid to try them! thought they would be so spicy!!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Crazy! I'll pick up some more and try them this week. The last ones I had were fine, but that was several weeks ago. I didn't buy them when I saw them last.Delete
But you get yours at the farmer's market, right? I'm guessing the ones I get at the store are much less seasonal!
I do this with padron peppers but they seem to have such a short season here. So good. I'll try looking for these peppers at my local japanese market! Yum!!ReplyDelete
mm.. LOVE these! attempt to locate them in chicago commencingReplyDelete
obsessed with shishitos.ReplyDelete
