Loving this! I found the peas at the local store, wonders never cease. lol. Served the peas with grilled lamb and a potato salad. This only took the 15 mins because of cleaning the peas. Cooking is uber fast and mine were the perfect tender crisp texture. Kato, I'm sorry, the camera battery crapped out before I got to the veg. They tasted and looked great though! :D

Soooooooo easy and sooooooo good. I love sugar snap peas. The natural sweetness of the peas along with the ginger and sesame oil make a great combination. Thanks for another wonderful recipe, BK.

A wonderfully quick and easy side with a nice Asian flavor, I may have used a little more sesame oil than called for. Thanks for the post.
