The spiciness of the ichimi spice with the sweet miso sauce mixes with the shishito peppers and chikuwa for a delicious dish. It's great in bentos too.
I wanted to think up a recipe using shishito peppers that would be easy and work in bentos.
Don't over-cook the shishito peppers. They'll be tastier if you stop while they're still crispy.Don't use white miso. It doesn't work in this recipe.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
