I was looking for a dish to use up the rest of my snow peas I had on hand. I came across this and was so glad that I did. DH didn't really care for it. (He said "I don't like beans!" I said "these are not beans!!!") Repeat this a couple of times and you will start to feel my frustration.... any way we are still married. I do plan to make this again. Thanks Dancer for posting.
Lovely snow peas, Dancer, a perfect complement to grilled salmon and a brown rice and carrot pilaf. This was super simple, and has a very fresh taste. I used a couple tsp of olive oil rather than butter, and I didn't parboil the snow peas, instead electing to saute them with the sesame seeds and shallot (red onions, actually) and then add a bit of water to steam it up until the snow peas were crisp tender. I love when simple ingredients you tend to have on hand (minus the snow peas I guess) amount to something really special. Thanks for posting!
This is a fabulous and tasty way to eat snow peas! I used home grown frozen snow peas, just thawed, drained and added to the skillet after the sesame seeds were browned. I had to saute a little longer than a minute, probably because my peas weren't already hot. I love this recipe, and so do my kids! Thanks Dancer!
