Snow Peas With Ginger
From: AB_Fan

From The Best Recipes in the World by Mark Bittman. "A small and perfectly easy dish. The finishing touch of hot sesame oil is a common garnish in Hong Kong and a nice one."


  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil or corn oil or grapeseed oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 2 cups snow peas
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste

Put the oil in a 10- or 12-inch skillet, preferrably non-stick, over high heat. A minute later, add the ginger and peas and stir and toss occasionally, until they are lightly browned and their green color is vivid, about 2 minutes.

Add the soy sauce and transfer to a platter. Add the sesme oil to the same pan and heat for about 10 seconds. Pour over the snow peas, season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
