Shishito peppers – Hog & Rocks

Shishito peppers Hog & Rocks

Pan fried shishito peppers with sea salt.  $6
Hog & Rocks, San Francisco

They give you quite a lot of peppers for six dollars!  I’ve heard that one out of ten peppers is HOT, but this plate had a much higher percentage of hot peppers.  They weren’t too spicy, just hot enough to surprise you every time.  Shishito peppers have such a great flavor, and they’re longer than, say, padron peppers so they’re funner to eat.  I like the padron flavor better, though.  These shishitos were very good, but maybe a bit too greasy.
