Directions

  1. Heat the sesame oil and chili oil in a wok or skillet over medium-high heat until the oil shimmers with heat. Cook and stir the snap peas until they turn bright green and start to become tender, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper as they cook. Sprinkle peas with sesame seeds, and stir a few times to mix before serving.

Loved this recipe! One thing I wanted to mention is that I added mushrooms to the mix because I think they go hand in hand with snap peas. Again, the recipe turned out perfect for me BUT I do feel it would be a bit too oily as written without the shrooms to soak up some of the oil. You can always add more oil so if I ever do it without the mushrooms, I will start with 1 tsp. of the sesame oil and go from there.

I think the flavors were too overpowering for the snap peas. I'll just keep making my snap peas more simply.

Just a bit oily...will cut back a little on the oil the next time. We enjoyed these snap peas, and they really are a snap to prepare (no pun intended).

This was good, but when I added the garlic and onions and sauted all together I was told it tasted "bitter". I enjoyed it, but my company didn't. Oh well, lesson learned.

I omitted the chili oil because I don't like spicy food- but crisp and excellent!
