Sesame Sugar Snap Peas

Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time2 minutes
Total Time7 minutes
Servings: 2 -4


  • 3 cups fresh sugar snap peas
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds toasted


  • Blanch the peas in boiling salted water until they are bright green in color and still crisp - approx. 1-2 min. ( salted water helps keep the beans keep their bright green color).
  • Drain and plunge the beans in bowl of ice water immediately. (the ice water stops the cooking process and helps keep the beans crisp),
  • Drain again, and transfer to a mixing bowl.
  • Mix beans with sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds ( adjust measurement so that you are just coating the beans lightly with sesame oil, without residual oil accumulating in the bowl).

Can be served hot, cold or room temperature.
