Toasted Sesame Sugar Snap Peas

I’m gettin’ my sugar fix from this delectable sugar snap pea recipe, finished with toasted sesame seeds, sesame oil (basically the liquid version of toasted sesames!), and a dash of hot pepper flakes.

It’s easy, it’s delicious, and it’s the perfect veggie side with Asian dishes like stir fries or my 2-Minute Pan Seared Salmon with Honey Garlic Glaze!

Makes: a small side dish for 4 people, or larger side for 2 people

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Total time: 15 minutes

The Ingredients

8 ounces (1/2 pound) stringless sugar snap peas (sub snow peas if needed)

2/3 cup water

½ teaspoon sesame seeds

2 teaspoons sesame oil

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon hot pepper flakes (or to taste)

 

 

 

The Steps

For toasted sesame seeds: Add sesame seeds to a dry pan. Toast sesame seeds for 3-5 minutes over medium-high heat, using a spatula to toss around sesame seeds to evenly toast. Remove sesames from pan when they turn golden brown and set aside to cool.

For snap peas: In a small pot, add sugar snap peas and water. Cover pot and let snap peas steam over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes until snap peas are bright green and al dente.

Drain water from pot and add sesame oil, sesame seeds, hot pepper flakes, and salt. Stir, or shake pot with top on to combine. Serve warm (with my 2-Minute Glazed Salmon recipe!).
