Description

Poultry and fish pair well with this simple vegetable dish and leftovers can be chilled and served in tomorrow’s lunch salad. Change the profile of this dish by using a flavored olive oil or seasoned, smoked or coarse-crystal salts, such as kosher or Maldon. But proceed with caution, as flaky salts dissolve faster than granular salts on the tongue, resulting in a saltier flavor. Crush the flakes between your fingers and add a pinch at a time to suit your taste.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons
olive oil
1 pound
peas, sugar snap
2 cloves
garlic (minced)
2 tablespoons
mint, fresh (minced)
2 teaspoons
lemon zest
1 tablespoon
lemon juice
   
salt (to taste)

Instructions

Heat the oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the snap peas and garlic and sauté over high heat, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes until the peas are tender-crisp and slightly charred or blistering. Remove from the heat and stir in the mint, lemon zest and juice and a pinch of salt. Taste and add more lemon juice if desired before serving warm.
