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.
