Recipe: Stir-fried rice with shrimps and Shishito

Rice recipes with chilies
August 26, 2009

Shishito Chili PepperI grow many differend chili peppers and I like to try new varieties every year, but Shishito is my favourite one: it's a japanese chili, mild, crisp and fleshy.
The plant is about 50-60 cm (20-24 in) high, and produces pods 5-7 cm (2-3 in) long, twisted and asymmetric in shape, that ripe from green to glossy red.

Shishito is usually harvested green and cooked in many different ways. Fried in batter with other vegetables is an ingredient of the tempura, and it can be grilled and seasoned with a sesame or yogurth sauce.
Ripe red pods are less crunchy, and they could be stir-fried in the wok.

Cook the rice and the peas in boiling salted water, stirring only occasionally.
Meanwhile stem the shishito chilies and cut in a half lengthwise.
