We could write a thousand words about shishito peppers, a pepper not as famous as it should be, a pepper that toils in the shadows without love and attention, the most underrated of peppers. But we think once you taste the slaw it's mixed in here, you'll be struck wordless. We also think the pork and peanut combination that's the star of this meal deserves it's own rapturous praise, the flavors melding together seamlessly as they do. A thousand words? We'd rather you had thousands of good meals with your new pepper friend.
