Ingredients

  • 2 pounds fresh sugar snap peas
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Preparation

  1. Cook peas in boiling salted water to cover 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain. (To make ahead, wrap peas in paper towels, and place in a zip-top plastic bag. Seal and chill 8 hours.)
  2. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat; add peas, and sauté 3 minutes. Add garlic and remaining ingredients. Sauté 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
Note:

This can be doubled to serve eight.
