this little goat went to japan everything crunch


Add peppers to a mixing bowl and toss with a drizzle of canola oil and pinch of kosher salt until coated.

In a small bowl, whisk together 2 Tablespoons This Little Goat went to Tokyo sauce with ¼ cup Kewpie mayo. Transfer sauce to a small Ziploc bag (this will act as a disposable squeeze bottle once you snip off the bottom corner).

Preheat a large skillet (non-stick is preferred) over high heat. Once hot, add in the peppers. Drizzle with about 2 Tablespoons Tokyo sauce, tossing to combine.

Continue cooking, shaking the pan occasionally, until the peppers are just tender and turn a light blistered brown color, about 7-8 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate.

Snip off one bottom corner of your Ziploc bag and drizzle Tokyo mayo over your shishitos. Top with a sprinkle of Japan crunch for a bright pop umami flavor and delicious, savory crunch!
