Sugar Snap Peas With Fried Ginger

Sugar snap peas give a good crunch, you don't have to de-string them, and you can eat both the tender pod and the sweet little peas inside. To remove the calyx or cap at one end, a quick snap of the wrist, with or without a paring knife, should do the trick. The ginger here is pan-fried until golden crisp and can be used as garnish for any number of vegetable dishes. Available throughout the year, sugar snaps peak from February through September. You can also substitute raw peas.
