These were outstanding, healthy, and absolutely the freshest taste of these sugar snap peas, I could of just eaten the whole bowl. So refreshing, the lemon just married so well with these snap peas I almost could never make it any other way then this. I followed this exactly except since I only had 1 lb of peas. so I reduced the butter. Beautiful dish to serve, and beautiful to devour. Thank you so much, Antifreesz, just wonderful!
