I love to experiment with foods that I do not eat frequently or have never eaten before. It is one more way to explore foods with more of different flavors and the benefits they bring to our well-being.
Shishito peppers are my relatively recent discovery, as I have not had these peppers when I was growing up.
Though some people enjoy Shishito peppers raw, the best way to celebrate them is by blistering them in sesame or olive oil and adding some salt and herbs on top. Low in calories, yet full of flavor, shishito peppers make a wonderful snack or side food.
Shishito peppers are rich in Vitamins C and K.
Vitamin C – an excellent anti-0xidant that is beneficial for the entire body, skin included! Prevents cell damage, supports immune function, is a must during collagen formation, and reduces an overall inflammation overall.
Vitamin K – is important for blood clotting. However this fat-soluble vitamin is important for bone formation, heart disease prevention and plays a huge role in many other bodily functions to keep our bodies humming well.
That’s What Shishito Peppers Look Like After Being Blistered in Oil
