  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
  • 6 oz shishito peppers


  • Rinse and pat your peppers dry.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the olive oil and soy sauce.
  • Add the peppers to a large bowl, pour the olive oil and soy sauce over top. Using your hands, toss them together to evenly coat.
  • Place the peppers in the air fryer basket in a single layer.
  • Set your air fryer cooking temperature to 400 F, and the cooking time to 5 minutes. If needed, add 1-2 additional minutes.



  • Don't overcrowd the air fryer. Place the peppers in a single layer. This will ensure that they get crispy on all sides, and have that gorgeous blistered look to them!
  • You don't need to toss half way through cooking time.
  • Add 1-2 additional minutes if the peppers aren't blackened enough to your liking.
  • Serve with a a squeeze of lemon or lime juice, and a creamy vegan dip if you like.
