Sesame Sugar Snap Peas

This is so easy.  The sesame oil enriches the flavor of the sugar snap peas.  
  • 1 (12oz.) bag of sugar snap peas
  • 1 t. sesame oil
  • 1 t. sea salt
  • ½ t. black pepper
  1. Snap the end off of each of the snap peas and pull the string out
  2. In a medium sauce pan, boil water
  3. In a medium sized bowl, cover ice with water
  4. When the water starts to boil, place the peas in the boiling water for 5 minutes
  5. Strain the peas and quickly place them in the ice bath
  6. Strain and toss the peas with the sesame oil, salt and pepper
  7. Serve at room temperature
 Tips and Tricks:
  • Sesame oil goes bad quickly.  If you have sesame oil in your kitchen, check it to make sure it is OK.  If it doesn’t smell nutty and fragrant it probably isn’t good.  It should not smell oily.   I store mine in the refrigerator and that will extend the life of the oil.
