Q: I recently had some delicious shishito peppers at a restaurant and I want to try and make some myself. Does anyone have ideas about how to prepare them? Or suggestions for what they might go well with?

Editor: Madeleine, I like to toss whole shishito peppers with a little oil and cook them on a grill pan or cast iron skillet until they are soft and blistered, then sprinkle them with a little sea salt before eating. This is a popular Japanese bar snack, so I like eating them as an appetizer with drinks, or alongside other grilled vegetables and meats.

Readers, how do you prepare shishito peppers and what do you serve with them?

Next question?
