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?
