Snow Pea & Sesame Sauté

Print Friendly

I usually plan out a menu for the week and take it with me when I go grocery shopping.  But sometimes I get to the market and all my good intentions fall to the wind because I see something (usually some form of fresh produce) that just calls to me.  That’s exactly what happened when I saw these pretty snow peas.  They cook up in a matter of minutes and form a fantastic summer meal paired with grilled teriyaki chicken and jasmine rice.

I’m sending this recipe to Reeni of Cinnamon & Spice for her Side Dish Showdown.  June’s theme is Anything Goes! 

Snow Pea & Sesame Sauté

(Yield:  2 servings)

2 tsp olive oil

1/2 tsp each fresh grated ginger and garlic

2-3 c snow peas

2 tsp soy sauce

1/4 tsp honey

1/2 tsp sesame seeds

Dash pepper

In a wok or medium skillet over medium heat, heat the ginger and garlic until fragrant (about 1 minute), stirring constantly.  Turn the heat up to medium-high and add the snow peas, soy sauce, and honey.  Sauté 1-2 minutes (until just slightly softened), stirring constantly.  Turn off the heat and stir in the sesame seeds and pepper to taste.
