Sauteed Sugar Snap Peas

sugar snap peas

I love sugar snap peas, they have a nice sweetness and a great texture of full peas inside and edible skin. I usually eat them raw or maybe just saute with a little garlic and oil. I dressed it up a bit more with this recipe by adding some soy sauce and sriracha and a sesame garnish. Easy and delish.
