What a tasty little side dish these are!!
I’m always looking for new sides to try because it seems like we
always have the same thing. Broccoli, zucchini, squash etc.
After awhile those become very boring.
Lemon snap peas are anything but boring.
Fresh organic snap peas, freshly grated lemon &
freshly squeezed lemon juice.
I seriously think I could eat these as a main dish.
They are the perfect compliment to my Cajun pan fried tilapia.
1 tbsp. unsalted butter
12 oz. fresh sugar snap peas, de-stringed
1 tsp. lemon zest, freshly grated
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
Melt butter in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add the snap peas and toss to coat. Cook snap peas over medium-high heat for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the lemon zest, salt and pepper (and thyme, if you wish) and cook an additional 3-5 minutes, until the snap peas begin to puff up and are crisp, yet tender. Squeeze a little lemon juice over top right before serving.
