Shishito peppers are Japanese peppers. They are generally mild, but occasionally you will come across a spicy one. Serve as an appetizer with Ponzu Aioli Dipping Sauce and Pickled Red Cabbage. Or, serve on a Gochujang Teriyaki Burger with Ponzu Aioli Dipping Sauce and Pickled Red Cabbage.

Ponzu sauce is similar to soy sauce with hints of citrus. You can find it in the Asian aisle of most supermarkets.
