Grilled Lemon Cilantro Shishito Peppers


  • 1 pound fresh shishito peppers, whole
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • Pinch of sea salt


  1. Place clean, whole shishito peppers in a large Ziploc bag.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and seal the bag.
  3. Shake the bag vigorously to distribute ingredients and refrigerate for a few hours prior to grilling.
  4. Heat grill and place shishito peppers on a grilling basket or grilling platter (the small peppers fall through the grill grates easily).
  5. Grill for about 8 minutes, until browned on surface.
