Simple Sautéed Shitake Mushrooms with Shishito Peppers

I was inspired by the mushroom side dish I had a Cut a couple months back. Decided try my own rendition of it when I saw a pack of Shishito peppers while walking around Isetan Orchard with the wife.
Sautéed Shitake Mushrooms with Shishito Peppers

Shishito peppers is a thin skinned pepper that is not very spicy but lends a very nice fragrance to this dish. Not as tart or fruity are other more fleshy peppers that we usually find in our local supermarkets. This is a very simple and easy dish to prepare and a great complement to almost any meal.

1 shallot - sliced
250 grams shitake mushrooms - half them if they are very large
6 Shishito peppers - stalks removed
Soya sauce and ground black pepper for seasoning
Handful of bonito flakes for garnish


1. Heat some cooking oil in a saute pan over medium heat.

2. When oil is heated, add in the peppers and fry for about 2 minutes.

3. Add in the shallots and fry until the shallots soften and the peppers start to wrinkle and brown slightly on the edges.

4. Add in the mushrooms and continue to fry for another 3-5 minutes. When mushrooms are almost done, turn of the heat and add in the soya sauce and ground black pepper to taste.

5. Dish onto plates and garnish with bonito flakes.

That's all there is to it. Simplicity at its best! Hope you'll enjoy this recipe.
