Makes 4 to 6 servings

Dress up sugar snap peas with butter, garlic, lemon juice, and lemon rind for a simple, yet elegant, side dish.

How to Make It

Step 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.)

Step 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.

Chef's Notes

This can be doubled to serve eight.

These were a nice side dish. There was just enough of a lemon flavor. I served this with a ham steak and sweet potatoes.
