Keto Shishito Peppers with Bacon
Sometimes simple is best, and these Keto Shishito Peppers with Bacon are just simply delicious. If shishitos are an ingredient you are unfamiliar with don’t worry, this is a great way to try them out for the first or fiftieth time.
A few years ago I had never heard of shishito peppers, but I happened to stumble across them in a Trader Joe’s and was intrigued. I grabbed a package of them and when I got home googled how to cook them and ended up blistering them in my skillet and eating them on the side with a salmon filet.
I was hooked immediately! Shishito’s have a very mild flavor but roughly one in ten is significantly spicier then the rest (though it’s still not as hot as a jalapeno), but it made dinner somewhat playful, guessing whose plate would have the a spicy one or which bite might be the one.
I have been seeing shishito peppers everywhere lately, as they become more common. I grabbed these at a farmer’s market when we passed through Vermont, and blistering them in the bacon grease has become my favorite way to prepare them.
