Blistered Shishito Peppers with Garlic Dipping Sauce

These shishito peppers are easy to prepare and make a wonderful side dish or appetizer. They are delicious sprinkled with sea salt or dipped in my sweet garlic sauce.

Cook Time 10 minutes


  • Shishito peppers
  • Avocado oil
  • Flakey sea salt or pink Himalayan salt


  1. Wash and thoroughly dry the peppers.

  2. Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat until hot.

  3. Add avocado oil to mostly cover the bottom of the pan, then immediately add the peppers. They will sizzle and pop, so be careful! I usually do this in 2 batches depending on how many peppers I have.

  4. Cook for 3-4 minutes, the flip and cook another 3-4 minutes or until peppers are blistered on the outside and softened.

  5. Remove peppers to a bowl and sprinkle with sea salt.

  6. Serve with Sweet Garlic Dipping Sauce if desired.
