I found a recipe for these Shishito peppers in a magazine many years ago. I clipped it and rather than it landing in a pile of other clippings folded between pages of my cook book for some reason it sat in my desk draw, taunting me every time I looked for something in my desk.
I was thrilled to recently find these peppers were available in many of my local supermarkets including Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and Wegman's Super Markets. 
An interesting fact about Shishito peppers is that 1 out o 10 of these peppers can carry some heat. Make sure when you serve these that you inform your guests.
The sauce really elevates the peppers make sure not to skip it.
