This is a modification of the “Roasted Shishito Peppers” recipe by Sonja Overhiser. The difference is instead of kosher salt, this recipe uses Traeger rub. (We’re reducing salt intake in our diet.)

Many thanks to my mom, Angie Fryer, for sharing this recipe with me! We had this a few months ago when we were in Manhattan for a visit. These are SO GOOD!

The main difference in the way I cooked these and mom did is that I didn’t use kosher salt, but substituted “Traeger Rub.” It’s my standby vege seasoning now, it’s salt free, and just has garlic and chili pepper.
