Shishito peppers is among one of the most popular restaurant appetizers of the year. SUNSET® introduced The Shazam!™ Shishito peppers, which will be available in the produce section of select retailers. These slim, flavorful peppers are among the top five fastest growing categories in foodservice according to DMA Solutions.
"Part of the SUNSET Chef Inspired collection, Shazam! delivers a unique and exciting flavor experience to consumers. Nine out of ten of the peppers have a mild and savory flavor, with a faint citrus note, while one of the ten has a zesty, but not overpowering burst of heat," explained SUNSET Culinary Director Roger Mooking. "Although great in salads or as a snack, I recommend Shazam! Shishito peppers roasted in olive oil with a dash of sea salt."
"With their vibrant green color and beautiful aromatic flavor, Shazam! Shishito peppers are perfect for backyard entertaining at summer BBQs and pool parties. They appeal to consumers' adventurous side and add an element of anticipation and excitement to any meal."
"Shishito peppers have been growing tremendously in foodservice and we saw a huge opportunity to provide this to consumers at a retail level," shared CEO Paul Mastronardi. "We believe the pepper category is ripe for innovation. We are pleased to introduce Shazam! to our roster of unique and exciting products."
Shazam! Shishito peppers are now available at select retailers.
