Never have tried the Shishito's, they look just amazing all roasted! I'm betting they are even better than the cast iron skillet w/ olive oil as you describe jalapeno's I sometimes make are - and they are hard to beat!! I saw some Shishito plants for sell the other day, I might have to go see if they are still for sell! I'm a bit jealous of that Aleppo powder... Lol. (never had the pleasure of trying Aleppo anything). I'd have to probably make a 2 hour round trip to the nearest Middle Eastern grocery to be able to find some. (if they even carry it)
Nice Chupetinho's too! Aren't they just awesome!? I love those little guys! Beautiful peppers all around... those yellow, orange, and red ones in the corner just scream 'eat me' and are like a welcome sign announcing warm & sunny summer days! I know your enjoying!
Definitely worth picking up those shishito plants if they're still around, they seem to be pretty dang prolific and are very early season compared to everything else I'm growing. That aleppo pepper powder is pretty tasty too, I first had it on some kebabs at a restaurant a few months back and was pretty excited to find it in store. If you want some shoot me a PM & next time I head out grocery shopping I can pick some up and stick it in the mail. They sell it in bulk at that store & it's really cheap. They have a ton of different varieties in the bulk section, I got some tabasco powder too.
Also I think those ones that look like chupetinhos might be biquinhos since they were completely mild with no heat. They're sold at the olive bar though & not labeled so I'm not sure. I am growing two chupetinho plants this year and am really looking forward to those.
The ones in the top right corner were called "dulce mediteraneo" and they are incredibly sweet and taste kinda like the best bell pepper ever. The store I got all these at is called Central Market and they have an awesome produce section with a pretty good size part dedicated to peppers:
They even had dried Butch T Scorpions:
