Great spring dish when sugar snap peas are in season! Nice veggie side instead of the usual corn or green beans, etc. Simple, easy and quick.


  1. In a large pot of boiling water, add sugar snap peas and cook for one minute; drain and plunge them into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process.
  2. Over medium-low heat, melt butter in a skillet large enough to hold the sugar snap peas.
  3. Add the lemon zest or fresh mint.
  4. Put sugar snap peas in the skillet and toss with the butter mixture; gently heat until sugar snap peas are hot, about 2 minutes.
