  • sugar snap peas about 250 grams for 2 people, 500 g for 4 people
  • 2 tsp olive oil just enough to barely coat the peas in a mixing bowl
  • 2 tsp kosher salt


  • remove strings from the pea pods by pinching stem end and pulling down the length of the pea pod
  • toss cleaned sugar snap peas in mixing bowl with the olive oil, just enough to coat
  • add salt and toss to coat
  • heat pan on stove over medium to medium high heat - do not add any cooking fat
  • once pan is hot, add peas and toss every minute or so until lightly scorched and done while still being slightly crunchy, maybe 3-4 minutes
