Mealthy Tip

Coconut aminos are a gluten-free and paleo alternative to soy sauce. They add a rich, savory flavor to foods. Give it a shot here and in other recipes where you'd typically use soy sauce. You can find coconut aminos at Whole Foods and health food markets. if you cannot find Tajin, use 1/8 teaspoon cayenne plus ¼ teaspoon salt.

Just me, or did these peppers just show up overnight and be EVERYWHERE?! I like peppers. I'd had these at a few restaurants. This was a good excuse to buy some shishitos and some of the Taijin I always see at the Mexican grocery. Super-fast. Super-easy. Super-tasty. As it should be. Great anytime snack.

With it being shisito pepper season here, I had to make something with them. Could not find Tajin Clásico, so opted for cayenne pepper instead. Still delicious! I also served this alongside some romesco sauce.

Always wondered what to do with these guys when they first started appearing in local markets -- so glad for an outstanding "introductory" recipe! Lime juice and cayenne (definitely on the hunt now for Tajin) makes this a winner in my book. Easy to make, easy to serve, and even easier to eat. Don't worry about the heat; these little guys are pretty mild.
