Vegetable oil for frying

Shishito peppers

Sea salt

 

Fill a deep pot with 3 to 4 inches of oil.  Heat over medium heat to 350°.  Add a big handful or two of peppers to the oil and immediately cover the pot with a lid to avoid splattering.  After about 10 seconds, remove the lid and give a quick stir.  Continue cooking for another  10 seconds or so until the peppers are blistered and begin to color.  Remove from the oil and drain.  Transfer to a plate and sprinkle generously with salt.
