Korean Braised Shishito Peppers Banchan Side Dish
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 cups shishito peppers
- ¼ cup water
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat; add shishito peppers. Cook and stir peppers until slightly softened and lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
- Mix water, soy sauce, garlic, sesame oil, and kosher salt together in a bowl; pour over shishito peppers. Simmer peppers, spooning the soy sauce mixture over peppers occasionally, until liquid is slightly reduced and peppers are very tender, 3 to 5 minutes.
Shisito peppers are a sweet, East Asian variety of pepper. They are slender, finger-sized bright green peppers with long creases in the body of the fruit. Their flavor is lively and sweet with a hint of smokiness.
