What's Cookin?: Roasted Shishito Peppers with Miso Vinaigrette

I had another big harvest of Shishito Peppers. Although my favorite way to eat these are just pan fried with sea salt, I was trying something new. This recipe was a nice change of pace and the miso vinaigrette added a nice touch.

Roasted Shishito Peppers with Miso Vinaigrette

1 lb. Shishito peppers
sea salt
canola or vegetable oil to toss
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
t tsp. miso paste
1 tsp. sesame seeds
1 tsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. canola or vegetable oil

1) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Toss the peppers with a little bit of oil. Place them in a baking pan or cookie sheet and roast them for about 20 minutes. Sprinkle them with sea salt when you remove them from the oven.
2) In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Drizzle the sauce over the peppers and serve.
