Serves: 4 servings
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1lb snap peas, ends trimmed
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp chili flakes (more or less to taste)
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 lime, juice and zest
  • splash of fish sauce (optional)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over high heat. Add in snap peas and sauté over high heat for 3-4 minutes, until they are tender, but still crisp. Add in garlic and chili flakes and sauté another 30 seconds or so, until the garlic is fragrant, being sure to keep the pan moving / constantly stirring so the garlic doesn’t burn.
  2. Place the snap peas in a bowl and toss in the chopped peanuts, chopped cilantro and the zest from the lime. Add in the juice from 1/2 the lime and a splash of fish sauce, if using. Taste and adjust seasonings - salt, pepper, more lime juice, more fish sauce, etc. Garnish with additional cilantro and chopped peanuts, if desired.
