  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 30 shishito or Padrón peppers (about 6 ounces)

  • ½ teaspoon flaky sea salt, such as Maldon (see Tip)


  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a large flat-bottom wok or cast-iron skillet over high heat until shimmering. Add shishito (or Padron) peppers and bell peppers and cook, stirring, until starting to blacken in spots, about 3 minutes. Add lime and shallot and cook, stirring, until the peppers are tender, 2 to 3 minutes more. Serve sprinkled with salt.
  • Maldon sea salt has been produced in the town of Maldon, England, since 1882 with seawater from off the Essex coast. Its large, flaky crystals enable you to use just a tiny pinch of salt to deliver a big hit of flavor.
