This is a quick side dish that we love in our family. Here I have used snap peas, but have made this many times with snow peas. It comes together quickly and I bet your family will love it too.
Spicy Sesame Peapods
1 lbs. snap peas or snow peas
2 tsp. olive oil
1 1/2 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce (or more to taste)
2 tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. honey
Salt and Pepper to taste
Prepare the peas by removing the strings. This can be done by pulling down on the tip of the pod. This is the case more for the snap peas than the snow peas. For the snow peas, just remove the tip. In this picture I didn’t remove the tips and strings and won’t make that mistake again.
Heat a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and the peas, saute for 2 minutes. Drizzle the sesame oil over the peas and stir to coat. Saute for an additional 2 minutes. Add the Sriracha, soy sauce and honey, toss to coat and heat through – about 2 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
