From Japanese groceries and gourmet super markets like Whole Foods, one can find shishito peppers. This time, I bought my shishito peppers and padron peppers from our weekly Green Market in our neighborhood.
Shishito peppers are longer and somewhat ribbed compared to padron peppers which are shorter and rounder. Most of the shishito peppers are not hot; whereas padron peppers could vary from not hot to somewhat hot. I like combining both to give some zing to our quick and easy recipe.
1 lb shishito peppers, padron or mixture of both
4 TB olive oil
