  • 8 oz shishito peppers rinsed and dried
  • ½ Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt to taste


  • Coat peppers in oil and salt place in air fryer basket.
  • Air fry on 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 7-8 minutes until peppers are roasted and blistered, shaking halfway.


  • Wash and pat dry the peppers before coating them. Pat them dry with a paper towel to remove the excess moisture.
  • Don't overcook the peppers. They should be just blistering. If you overcook them they can become soft and mushy.
  • Don't overcrowd the air fryer basket. Cook them in two batches if you are making more.
