This recipe combines my two favorite things: fresh garden produce and an easy weeknight side dish. We grew about eight shishito pepper plants this year in our garden, and they’ve been producing like crazy. This is our first year growing shishitos, and we’ve been super happy with the crop.
 
We absolute LOVE our Air Fryer and I’ve been trying all kinds of delicious vegetables in it.  I’ve been having a lot of fun trying out new ways to use it, and let me tell you, the air fryer is made for shishito peppers. These peppers were an amazing side dish with stew!  The air fryer gets the peppers crispy on both sides, and tender in the middle.

  • Shishito Peppers – I used ones fresh from the garden. If you can find them in season, try local ones.  
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s inexpensive & I like to keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry.  For the quality of oil you get, it’s an excellent value.
  • Toasted Sesame Oil: The sesame oil gives the perfect toasty flavor to the peppers.
  • Garlic Salt: for a sprinkle of flavor and saltiness, which is really great on the peas!
  • Lemon Juice – for a little extra pop of flavor at the end.

Perfect Peppers in the Air Fryer

We have a Cosori Air Fryer (it has legit over 30k positive reviews on Amazon) and we are in LOVE with this thing!  Since we don’t use a microwave, this air fryer is perfect for heating up things quickly. It’s been really fun to make all kinds of recipes in the Air Fryer: crispy vegetables, tofu, muffins, and it’s great for reheating leftovers. 

I was an air fryer skeptic for a long time, but highly recommend this air fryer for anyone who loves to cook! I got this one as a gift, so would also recommend this as a great gift for friends or family.

How Do I Air Fry Shishito Peppers?

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, mix the olive oil, toasted sesame oil, garlic salt, and shishito peppers.  Toss well to combine.
  3. Place the peppers in the hot air fryer basket (or air fryer rack, depending on your model).
  4. Set air fryer to 400 degrees, and cook for 6 minutes.  Halfway through cooking, shake well.
  5. Once peppers have finished cooking, squeeze fresh lemon juice over the peppers, and serve hot!
