We think stove-top shisito peppers make for a near-perfect appetizer: quick to make, delicious, and a little exotic. You can pick them up in ethnic markets or some larger supermarkets, and with 10 minutes and 3 other ingredients, you can bring home a taste of the Orient to your guests.



  1. In a large bowl, mix peppers, olive oil, Garlic Pepper Rub and Green Tea Sea Salt, tossing well to coat.
  2. Put a large non-stick pan on the stove and heat on medium.
  3. When the pan is warm, add pepper mix, reserving bowl. Try to ensure peppers are evenly distributed in the pan.
  4. Toss and mix peppers - they will start to char and blister at the 6 minute mark. Keep tossing for another 2 minutes.
  5. Remove peppers from pan, add to bowl and toss in reserved mixture, and serve.
