Sautéed Shishito Peppers: Summer’s Best New Bite

BY DEBORAH MADISON MARCH 2013 VEGETABLE LITERACY

https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/sauteed-shishito-peppers-summers-best-new-bite-51153400
Sautéed shishitos are absolutely the best thing to nibble on with drinks, and they’re insanely easy to prepare. Padrón peppers can be
treated exactly the same way, but they can be hot, so choose accordingly.

PREPARATION
Here’s what you do. Heat a little olive oil in a wide sauté pan until it is good and hot but not smoking. Add the peppers and cook them
over medium, tossing and turning them frequently until they blister. They shouldn’t char except in places. Don’t rush. It takes 10 to 15
minutes to cook a panful of peppers. When they’re done, toss them with sea salt and add a squeeze of fresh lemon. Slide the peppers
into a bowl and serve them hot. You pick them up by the stem end and eat the whole thing, minus the stem, that is.
You can probably do fancier, cheffy things with them, but they’re terrific like this. For variety, I sometimes use a little toasted sesame
oil instead of olive oil and finish them with togarashi. If you have leovers,
an unlikely event in my experience, chop off the stems and
put the peppers in an omelet or some scrambled eggs.

The Ingenuity of Man

 

I was really impressed with this picture from a BBC article.

http://www.bbc.com/news/in-pictures-45084154

“A boy plays with a toy car in Rhino camp. Such cars, made from bottle caps and other waste plastic, are seen throughout the camps. No two are ever quite the same.”

Chili Rellenos

READY IN: 27mins SERVES: 4
INGREDIENTS

4 large green Anaheim chilies, roasted and peeled, leave stems on
cheddar cheese, cut into sticks (or Monterey Jack)
3 eggs, separated
1 tablespoon water
3 tablespoons flour
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
salsa (optional)

DIRECTIONS

To roast chilies:
Place chile peppers on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.
Broil 5 inches from the heat (with electric oven door partially open) 5 minutes on each side or until chile peppers are blistered.
Place chile peppers in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; seal.
Let stand 10 minutes to loosen skins.
Peel peppers, leaving stems attached.
Make a slit in the side of each chile, remove seeds, and stuff with cheese sticks.
Dredge chiles with flour. Beat egg whites until they become stiff and peaks form. Beat yolks with water, 3 tablespoons flour and salt until thick and creamy. Fold the yolks into the whites and dip the chiles in the mixture.
Fry in 2-3 inches of oil until they become golden brown.(I usually use about an inch and turn them over).
Serve with your favorite salsa, refried beans and yellow rice for a great south of the border meal!
