Description: Shishito peppers have a flavor similar to a green pepper but with more sweetness. They are not considered to be hot. Most shishito peppers are under 150 Scoville Heat Units – which is only a little bit spicier than a bell pepper.
They are considerably less hot than a banana pepper, which is still considered a relatively mild pepper. Roasting the peppers makes them a bit sweeter so that helps with the spiciness as well.
Shishito peppers can be eaten raw. They're small (only 3-4 inches long) so they're great for snacking. While they're perfectly fine to eat raw, when you cook shishito peppers they become the culinary stars of the show. Their thin skins make them ideal for roasting for blistering.
