  4. Cook shallot in butter in a 10-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 1 minute.
  5. Increase heat to high, then add sugar snaps and sauté, stirring occasionally, until sugar snaps are crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes.
  6. Add tarragon, zest, salt and pepper and toss until combined well.
