Soy Sesame Sugar Snap Peas

Soy Sesame Sugar Snap PeasI wanted a healthy and tasty side dish to serve with the Asian-Glazed Chicken Thighs I made for dinner recently. I saw a bag of sugar snap peas in the refrigerator and so I decided to cook them like I cook edamame. I sautéed the sugar snap peas with sesame oil, soy sauce, and freshly minced garlic. I cooked them until they were warmed through then served them immediately. They were crisp-tender, very flavorful, and paired nicely with the chicken thighs.

    Simple yet really tasty and filling. Unfortunately for me had no cooked chicken thighs to go along with it. Had some leftover ground beef though so I saute’d it with the peas. Good good! This was a really good easy recipe.

    Delious!! Made exactly as the recipe, but I let them sit in skillet off the heat, with a lid about 3-4 minutes before serving, still crunchy and great flavor, served as a side with grilled salmon
