How To Make Snow Peas

Pair your main dishes with this bright and crisp snow peas recipe. This 15-minute recipe is easy and quick with just minimal seasonings.

Prep: 11 mins
Cook: 4 mins
Total: 15 mins
Serves:

Ingredients

  • 16 fl oz fresh snow peas
  • 2 tsp kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 pc lemon, zested
  • ½ cup almonds, slivered or sliced, toasted, optional
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Break the stem ends off of the snow peas and pull off the strings. Rinse well.
  3. Fill a medium saucepan with about 2 quarts of water and 2 teaspoons of salt. Bring the water to a boil over high heat.
  4. Add the snow peas and let the water return to a boil.
  5. Boil the pea pods for 30 to 45 seconds. Don't overcook them or they will lose their crunch.
  6. Immediately drain the peas in a colander.
  7. Wipe out the pan, making sure it is dry. Add the butter to the pan and place it over medium heat.
  8. When the butter begins to sizzle, add the drained snow peas.
  9. Sauté the pea pods in the butter, stirring, for about 1 minute.
  10. Add the lemon zest and toasted almonds (if using) and continue cooking for 1 minute.
  11. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve and enjoy.
