"Blistered shishitos are perfect little appetizer bites. They even come with their own handle. Just hold them by the stem and pop them in your mouth. Eat them seeds and all." - Elise Bauer


  • 1 Toss shishito peppers with AWAKE olive oil in a bowl, so the peppers are well coated.
  • 2 Heat a well seasoned cast iron (or a pan that can take high heat) on high heat. When the pan is hot, add the peppers to the pan in a single layer. Let the peppers sear and blister on one side, then use tongs to turn them over individually to sear on the other side.
  • 3 Remove to a bowl and sprinkle the shishito peppers with salt and a drizzle of LUCID. Enjoy immediately.
