I LOVE shishito peppers. They’re so delicious when simply browned in a pan with some sea salt. I wanted to do something a little more special with them though, so this time I made a crostini with some fresh ricotta cheese and spiced honey. I ate so many of them I could hardly eat my main meal afterward!
1 pound shishito peppers
1 baguette, sliced into 1/2 inch thick pieces
Fresh ricotta cheese
3 tablespoons honey
Pinch of cayanne pepper
Pinch of paprika
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drizzle the baguette slices with a little olive oil and cook in oven until slightly toasted.
In the meantime, add the shishito peppers to a pan with some olive oil, salt, and pepper. Cook them for about 7-10 minutes or until they are browned a bit. Next, in a small bowl mix together the honey, cayenne, and paprika.
To assemble, spread a good amount of ricotta cheese onto the bread, top with shishito peppers, and drizzle with the spiced honey!
