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
- In a dry skillet, toast sesame seeds until light brown. Remove and set aside.
- Saute garlic in oil over low heat until golden.
- 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.
- Mix soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil together in a small bowl. Pour over snow peas. Reduce heat.
- Add the rest of the green onions (the green parts) and toasted sesame seeds. Cook for a couple more minutes.
