Shishito Peppers with Den Miso and Bubu Arare

I had these Shishito Peppers with Den Miso and Bubu Arare at Tokyo Fried Chicken Co. in Monterey Park, CA. I love shishito peppers and now have a new way to make them. About one out of every ten peppers is spicy. The person that gets the spicy one will have good luck! Bubu Arare can be found in Japanese markets or online.

Pickapeppa BBQ Shrimp

 

Pickapeppa Sauce was invented by a 16 year old boy in Jamaica in 1921. The sauce is sweet, sour and mildly spicy. One traditional use of the sauce is to pour it over a block of cream cheese, to be spread on crackers. You’ve got to try this Pickapeppa BBQ Shrimp. Don’t ask why it’s called barbecued shrimp, when it’s not even barbecued. No one seems to know.  It’s a New Orleans favorite.
