Somewhere between a bell pepper and a jalapeno, shishito peppers, finger sizedÂ with a mild, sweet flavor all their own, make the easiest appetizer or side dish. Â Pour a cold beer and snack away while enjoying early autumn’s gloaming. Beware: one in every ten packs a spicy punch.
Peppers are wildly in season and will not be ignored. Â Here’s the easiest and most satisfying way to enjoy the bounty.
Lightly coat peppers in olive oil. Â Grill for 6-8 minutes on medium high heat, turning occasionally (while sipping the first ale). Â Take in the fragrance. Top with coarse sea salt.
