Sesame Snow Peas

Sesame Snow Peas

I wanted a simple side dish to pair with the Korean beef lettuce wraps that I was serving for dinner recently. I had some snow peas in the refrigerator and decided to saute them with a bit of sesame oil, coconut oil, and minced garlic, then I simply seasoned them with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. Quick, easy, and so tasty! We all really loved the flavor combination of the oils and thought these sesame snow peas were really delicious and they paired nicely with the lettuce wraps.

  1. That looks terrific! I love sugar snap peas and snow peas with garlic, and I imagine the addition of sesame would be great.

  2. what a great preparation! sesame seeds are becoming quite useful to me–do the black ones taste any different that the white?

  3. We eat a lot of snowpeas here in Asia, we put it in a lot of food as its easy to cook and tasty as well. You should try t sautee it with beef or shrimp.
