Shishimai are similar to our friggitelli, small green chillies, sweet and to be eaten in a bite. They are the ideal side dish for meat-based recipes and in Japan they are an indispensable ingredient for fried foods (Tempura) and Yakitori (delicious chicken skewers).
Grilled or stir-fried with a pinch of salt, they are perfect as a snack accompanied by a good beer.
Curiosity: the name shishi (lion in Japanese) derives from the shape of the tip of the chilli which is not pointed as in our own, but resembles a snapdragon.
