Shishito Pepper, Wiener Sausage, and Garlic Sauté

Shishito Pepper, Wiener Sausage, and Garlic Sauté

I used seasonal vegetables and seasoned them very lightly. Garnished with crushed black peppercorns, this is a spicy dish for adults.

Ingredients: Serves 2

Shishito peppers
Wiener sausages
1 clove (or 2 small cloves)
Natural salt
2 pinches
Whole Black Peppercorns
Olive oil
1 Tablespoon


1. Wash the Shishito peppers thoroughly. Remove the stems and poke a hole in the exposed area with a toothpick (this will prevent the peppers from exploding).
2. Cut the wieners into halves lengthwise. Slice the garlic, and crush the peppercorns.
3. Pour olive oil into a frying pan. Add sliced garlic and carefully sauté over low heat.
4. When the garlic releases its aroma, add wieners and continue to sauté. Add the Shishito peppers to the pan and keep sautéing.
5. Season lightly with the salt to taste. Sprinkle crushed black pepper. Turn off the heat, and serve.

Story Behind this Recipe

I was given a lot of Shishito peppers, so I created this quick sauté with them.
