Shishito Peppers!!!   I first experienced these amazing little green buggers in Dallas at an amazing sushi place - Yutaka.  I found them this week at my food co-op (Park Slope).  These are the easiest things to make.  Heat a little olive oil in a skillet on high heat.  Put the whole pepper (don’t cut or remove stem) in a single layer - not too close; you want them to brown, not steam.  Leave them for 2 minutes, then flip.  They should be blistered on one side.  Let them sit another minute or two, then stir/toss for a bit.   Once they are nicely blistered all around, remove from pan; grind some fresh sea salt (I do Himalayan pink salt) and a squeeze of lemon.  Most are sweet; but some are spicy!!!   Hold by the stem and bite the entire pepper (in one or two bites) to eat.  Enjoy!!
