As I walked through the farmer’s market in Union Square, I was reminded of these little Shishito Peppers and had to buy some. There is a Korean stand, usually located at the North side of the park (around where Barnes & Nobles is) that sells these little Japanese Peppers. Sometimes they prepare some for patrons to try in my favorite simple method, just blistered in a little bit of oil and sprinkled with some coarse salt. You can pop these mild peppers right into your mouth and I can eat a large bowl of them.

I did a quick google search and I’m surprised that these little peppers have gotten a lot of press in the blogosphere already. A So Cal blogger gives a good description and another NYC blogger tells us where you can get it, fresh or already prepared. So if you need one more positive review to try them, here’s mine: They are yummy!
