A quick and easy side dish! Plus it's a great way to perk up peas! I used a steam in bag of petite peas so there was no need for the additional water. I used Land O Lakes light butter and seasoned with the lemon pepper and dill basically eyeballing until I got the flavor I desired.

We love peas and eat the frozen variety often with dinner. I loved the idea of this when I came across it... I just cooked the peas like I normally do in the microwave, drained the water, and then sprayed with spray butter and seasoned with the dill and lemon pepper, along with a little salt. Thanks for a different way to prepare a favorite veggie. :)

Good....taste like peas. Be careful not to use too much lemon pepper, that seasoning is very intense!

Didn't have the actual lemon pepper spice in the house, so I used fresh cracked pepper and lemon zest. Loved this Jane and thanks!

Three stars as written, four for its potential. I used fresh dill along with the lemon pepper and all it needed was more of both!

Just did a trial run for Thankgiving and these will definitely be on the table. I made recipe as is, but added additional dill and lemon pepper after tasting. So few ingredient, so easy and so, so tasty.

Wow! I'm so glad I made this. It's awesome; I could have had just peas for dinner. Here's what I did: drained one can of peas. Put in a bowl. Added 1 tablespoon butter. Sprinkled pretty heavily with dill and lemon pepper (I had lemon pepper salt, actually). I probably used a good half-teaspoon of each. Maybe the submitter has really big fingers. :) Anyway, I nuked it for one minute and stirred it to distribute the butter and seasoning. SO GOOD. UPDATE: I have since tried it with frozen peas (I only had canned the first time I made it). Even better.
