Ingredients

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

8 ounces shishito peppers (about 6 cups)

1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan

Kosher salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the broiler with an oven rack set about 4 inches from the heat source. Have a large mixing bowl ready. 
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat until light brown specks start to form and the butter starts to smell nutty, swirling the pan occasionally, about 5 minutes. Pour immediately into the mixing bowl, being sure to scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pan. 
  3. Spread the shishito peppers in a single layer on a baking sheet. Broil the peppers until lightly blistered and just starting to soften, shaking the baking sheet occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes. 
  4. Transfer the hot peppers to the bowl with the browned butter. Lightly toss with the lemon juice, cheese and a sprinkle of salt. Serve immediately.
