Blistered Shishito Peppers

Blistered Shishito Peppers + Sriracha Aoili

If I’m completely honest, I’m not a huge pepper lover BUT… after one date night to Uchi, these little Japanese heirloom peppers stole my heart! I knew I had to come home and make a healthier version without sacrificing the flavor! These babies are the perfect combo of mildly sweet and spicy. (The bag claims that only 1 in 10 are actually hot) Loaded with vitamin C and anti- inflammatory properties, shishito peppers make the perfect appetizer or side dish! Just don’t forget the spicy paleo aoili to take them to the next level.
