Shishito peppers are called kkwarigochu (꽈리고추) in Korean. They’re usually about 2-3 inches long and always wrinkly. The skin is thin and they’re very mild. In Korean cuisine they’re often used in side dishes and are steamed, stirfried, cooked, boiled, or sauteed.

    Hi Maangchi! Can you give us some recipes for these? I think I’ve had them before as sort of an appetizer at a Korean restaurant in Santiago. They were sweet and grilled, and super delicious!
