Simple & easy-to-follow

Step 1

Add the shishito peppers, grated garlic cloves, salt, and olive oil in a mixing bowl.

Step 2

Mix well with hand and ensure all the ingredients are well combined and evenly coated.

Step 3

If needed, preheat the air fryer according to the manufacturer’s instructions. I preheated the air fryer for 5 minutes at 370 deg F. Add the shishito peppers to the preheated air fryer basket.

Step 4

Air fry for 4 minutes at 400 deg F. Here is how it looks after 4 minutes.

Step 5

Now gently toss them and air fry again for 3 to 4 minutes at 400 deg F. Depending upon how you like your peppers, adjust this timing.

Step 6

Remove from the air fryer, drizzle some soy sauce (and some salt, if needed), and serve warm.
