Snow peas need so little cooking, and I hate worrying about taking them off the stove in time when steaming, especially when I have guests over. I tried microwaving them tonight for the first time and think I'm on to something!

These snow peas came out nice and tender with a nice Asian flavor. We loved the use of sesame oil, made half recipe that was done in two minutes. Thanks for the post.

Nice flavour! I only microwaved the peas for about 2 1/2 minutes as my microwave is high powered. The soy sauce adds a nice taste. Made for Spring PAC 2012. Thx!
