I have a friend who adores these Blistered Shishito Peppers and I must admit, I’m becoming addicted to them as well! They are seriously one of the quickest and tastiest appetizers/snack to make… can’t seem to get enough of them lately!
I was in Barcelona a couple months ago and every place I went I’d order some padron peppers. They were one of my favorite tapas on the menu. Naturally, when I returned home I couldn’t wait to make them. I didn’t come across any padron peppers around here but have easily found Shishito peppers in the grocery stores and farmers market. Shishito peppers are Asian and the padron peppers are from Spain, but both taste similar. They’re mild, not spicy, however, occasionally you may get one with a little bit of a kick….
