Snap Peas with Sesame Oil

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Sugar snap or snow peas
  • Salt
  • Sesame oil
  • Chopped parsley or cilantro


CUT ACROSS THE STEM END of the peas and pull off the string that runs along
the length of the pea. Bring a pot of water to a boil, add salt and the
peas. Blanch until the peas turn bright green and are tender-crisp, after a
minute or so. Taste to make surethe time will depend on the type of pea
and how mature it is. Scoop them out with a strainer and shake off as much
excess water as possible. Put them in a bowl and toss with just enough oil
to lightly coat, a teaspoon or so. Add the parsley or cilantro and serve.
For a variation, make the recipe using peanut oil or a fine olive oil
tossed with basil rather than cilantro.
