Shishito pepper is a type of chili pepper that is popular in Japanese cuisine. It is a small, thin-walled pepper with a bright green color and a wrinkled appearance.
Shishito peppers are known for their mild to medium level of heat, although occasionally, one pepper in the batch can be spicier than the others.
They have a unique flavor that is slightly sweet and smoky, with a hint of citrus.

Shishito peppers are often enjoyed as a snack or appetizer.
They are typically pan-fried or grilled until they blister and char slightly. The peppers are usually served whole, and the seeds are edible. One fun aspect of eating shishito peppers is that they can be a bit of a culinary game of chance, as you never know which pepper will be spicy and which will be mild.

They are often served with a dipping sauce, such as soy sauce or a citrusy ponzu sauce. Shishito peppers have gained popularity in many other cuisines around the world, thanks to their unique flavor and versatility.

How to Prepare Shishito Peppers?
Preparing shishito peppers for cooking is quite simple!
Here's a step-by-step guide on how to prepare them:

1. Wash the peppers: Start by rinsing the shishito peppers under cold water to remove any dirt or debris. Gently pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel or paper towel.

2. Trim the stems (optional): If desired, you can trim the stems of the peppers for a neater appearance. Simply use a sharp knife or kitchen scissors to cut off the stems, leaving a clean edge.

3. Leave them whole: Shishito peppers are traditionally cooked and eaten whole, including the seeds and stem. There's no need to cut or slice them unless you have a specific recipe that calls for it.

4. Remove excess moisture (optional): If you prefer your shishito peppers to be less prone to splattering while cooking, you can remove excess moisture by lightly scoring the peppers with a knife or making a small slit near the top. This step is optional but can help reduce spattering.

Once you've prepared the shishito peppers, you can proceed to cook them using methods like pan-frying, sautéing, or grilling as mentioned in the previous response. Enjoy their delicious flavor and unique texture!

Are Shishito Peppers low FODMAP?
Shishito peppers are generally considered low in FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, and Polyols), which are types of carbohydrates that can trigger symptoms in individuals with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or other digestive sensitivities.

According to the Monash University Low FODMAP Diet, shishito peppers are categorized as low FODMAP in small serving sizes. A typical serving size of shishito peppers is around 40 grams (approximately 6 peppers). Consuming larger amounts may increase the FODMAP content and could potentially trigger symptoms in some individuals.

It's important to note that individual tolerance to FODMAPs can vary. If you follow a low FODMAP diet or have specific dietary restrictions, it's always best to consult with a registered dietitian or healthcare professional to ensure the suitability of shishito peppers or any other food in your specific situation.

Additionally, the FODMAP content of foods can vary depending on factors such as ripeness, preparation methods, and cooking time. If you're unsure about how shishito peppers may affect you, it's advisable to start with a small portion and monitor your body's response.
