Sauteed Sugar Snap Peas

I love how easy it is to make sauteed sugar snap peas, and how delicious this simple dish is. I’m too lazy to wash and trim the peas, so I usually buy them pre-washed, pre-trimmed and ready to eat, which truly makes this a 10-minute dish.


Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lb. sugar snap peas, end and strings removed
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the peas and stir-fry until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, one more minute.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in the sesame oil, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
