Shishitos are Japanese sweet peppers, thin walled and lightly seeded, with a bright green wrinkled surface. The majority are without heat entirely (and indeed, we haven't found a spicy one this year), but traditionally about 1 in 10 have the heat of a mildly spicy jalapeno. You'll see these trendy little peppers in restaurants all over Atlanta, but here's your chance to enjoy them at home. We recommend tossing them in a little olive oil, broiling them until the skin is charred, sprinkling with a good sea salt (Maldon's is one of our favorites) and a drizzle of lemon juice. They are addictively delicious. Your order will contain 12 peppers, enough for two to share as an appetizer or for one to hog all to him or herself. :)
