  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • ½ teaspoon finely grated ginger

  • ½ teaspoon grated garlic

  • 8 ounces shishito peppers, rinsed

  • salt to taste


  1. Whisk together sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic in a large bowl. Add shishito peppers and toss to combine. Let marinate for 15 to 20 minutes, tossing occasionally.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and heat a grill pan.

  3. Remove peppers from marinade, letting excess marinade drip back into the bowl. Place peppers on the grill pan and cook, tossing every 1 to 2 minutes, until evenly charred, 5 to 7 minutes. Return peppers to bowl with marinade and toss. Sprinkle with salt, if desired, and serve.

Cook's Note:

If you do not own a grill pan, you can use a disposable aluminum pie plate over high heat.
