At Staplehouse in Atlanta, chef Ryan Smith makes his own version of the Japanese spice blend furikake that includes a housemade scallop powder and dried fermented mushrooms. A store-bought blend, however, will work perfectly here. Look for one without wasabi, as that flavor can be a bit intense on these shishitos.  Slideshow: More Pepper Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large cast-iron skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of the grapeseed oil. Add half of the peppers and cook over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until charred and tender, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. Repeat with the remaining oil and peppers. 

Step 2    

Add the 1 tablespoon of furikake, the lime juice and shoyu to the shishitos and toss to combine; season with flaky sea salt. Transfer to a platter; garnish with more furikake. Serve immediately with lime wedges.


Furikake is available 
at Asian markets and many Whole Foods.
