Sesame Sugar Snaps

Servings 6
Author Adapted from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook


  • 1 lb. raw sugar snap peas*
  • Dark sesame oil
  • Black sesame seeds (white or toasted white may be substituted)
  • Kosher salt (optional)


  • Wash, remove the stem end, and "string" each pod.
  • Toss the snap peas in a bowl with the sesame oil (a little goes a long way), sesame seeds, and kosher salt.
  • Serve at room temperature.


*If the peas are too tough to eat raw, they can be blanched by placing in boiling water for 3 - 5 minutes and then immediately immersing in ice water prior to starting the recipe.
