Air Fryer Shishito Peppers Recipe

Air Fryer Shishito Peppers Recipe

I really love this air fryer shishito pepper recipe. They’re savory and crispy with a little pop of heat. You can eat them as a healthy snack or side dish with soup, rice, or in a salad. They’re really good with some salt and sesame seeds. 

This shishito peppers recipe is low in carbs and calories. Shishito peppers are an East Asian sweeter pepper whose wrinkled surface resembles ground cherries. You should remove the seeds and guts also because it’s very spicy. Additionally they’re healthy, vegan, and plant based.

I love making air fryer recipes because it creates a crispy texture without using oil. Just use a little non stick cooking spray to spray the basket. These peppers are small and slender like a finger. Their walls are thin and turns from green to red when opened.

When I make this shishito peppers recipe I remove the seeds even though only about one out of every eight peppers is spicy. Spiciness depends on external factors such as exposure to sunlight and stressors. 

You only need a few easy ingredients to make this vegan plant based snack. The ingredients include 1 cup shishito peppers, 1/2 tbsp salt, 1 tsp pepper, 1 tbsp sesame seeds. Furthermore you can add any seasoning you like. Garlic powder and dried onion flakes are a tasty addition

Start making your shishito peppers recipe by cutting the shishito peppers in half and removing the seeds/guts and rinse them. Set your air fryer to a temperature of 400 degrees F. Air fryer recipes with vegetables are super simple to make.

Next, spray the basket with non stick cooking spray (I like olive oil flavor). Toss your shishito peppers inside the air fryer basket and disperse them evenly. Sprinkle your shishito peppers recipe with the seasoning and seeds 

Close the basket and cook for 5 minutes then open the basket and flip the peppers around. Cook your air fryer recipe again for another 3 minutes. This  shishito peppers recipe is gluten free and vegan.
