Japanese shishito peppers are very unique. They are about the size of half a normal-sized carrot and quite slender. They are green and turn to red when they are ripe. Here's the crazy part… they taste sweet and savory. Not spicy at all! Actually let me correct that, about 1 out of 10 are spicy. This little pepper is super delicious and addictive. Since I've discovered them, which was very recently, I've been frequently eating them as a snack. I like to munch on them after I grill them in front of my family and friends and they can't believe I'm eating what they believe to be a hot pepper. But after they give them a taste they are instantly hooked. I'm not kidding when I say you won't be able to eat just one! MORE + LESS -
