Snow Pea Stir-fry


I love snow peas – raw or cooked.  I also love the flavors that are on them in this stir-fry: garlic, sesame, and soy sauce.  When I made this and took the picture, I left the snow peas whole because I think they’re pretty that way. After eating it though, I think it’s a good idea to cut them into bite-sized pieces so they can fit on your spoon! I realize it’s not yet snow pea season in the US, so maybe you can remember this one for later if you live there.

1/2 T sesame seeds

1 lb snow peas, stems removed, sliced in 1 inch segments

1 T oil

2 gloves garlic, thinly sliced

4 green onions, sliced and separated between white and green parts

1 1/2 T soy sauce

1 T oyster sauce

1/2 T sesame oil

  1. In a dry skillet, toast sesame seeds until light brown. Remove and set aside.
  2. Saute garlic in oil over low heat until golden.
  3. Turn up the heat to medium. Add snow peas and white parts of the green onions to the garlic. Stir-fry for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Mix soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil together in a small bowl. Pour over snow peas. Reduce heat.
  5. Add the rest of the green onions (the green parts) and toasted sesame seeds. Cook for a couple more minutes.
  6. Serve over rice.
