Shishito peppers from eastern Asia are sweet, occasionally spicy and easy to prepare. They're often served as an appetizer.

ThisWeek staffers answer the question: Are shishito peppers underrated?

Dennis Laycock: Haven't tried them, but I'm game for any kind of peppers.

Scott Hummel: They must be. I've never heard of them.

Neil Thompson: I'm going to recycle my "Barberton chicken" answer: I guess they are, since I did not know of their existence before this question.

Lisa Proctor: I'd never heard of them, so maybe.

Nate Ellis: I'm tired of everyone and everything vying for recognition. So, absolutely not.

Andrew King: Not everything that's good is underrated.

Abby Armbruster: Can you find these in a regular grocery store? I've never cooked with them, but I also stay away from strong spices, if possible.

Sarah Sole: I'd try them.

Lee Cochran: I've never had them, so I really wouldn't know.
