Very Simple Sauteed Snap Peas
Author: Dani Lind
I got this trick from a Cook’s Illustrated magazine years ago – when you add just a sprinkle of sugar to peas as you sauté them it really brings out their natural sweetness… This is just the most delicious way to enjoy sugar snaps!
- 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
- 2 c. snap peas, stems & strings removed
- ⅛ tsp. sugar
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Heat butter in a cast iron or non-stick skillet over high heat until foamy.
- Toss in peas, sugar, salt & pepper & cook, tossing peas a few times, just until bright green & caramelized in a few spots.
- Eat immediately. Serves 2-3.
