Sauteed 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.


  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Cook Time : 5 min
  • Ready Time : 10 min


4 Servings


  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 pound sugar snap peas
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 green onion, sliced


Bring a wok or large frying pan over high heat.  When hot add the oil. Add the peas and then the ginger and garlic. Toss with tongs until the sugar snap peas turn bright green and lightly cooked. Add the soy sauce and sriracha and toss until well coated.  Remove from heat and sprinkle sesame seeds and green onion over top.  Serve hot or at room temperature.

  1. What is ” sriracha”?

    • Sriracha is a hot pepper sauce made with Asian peppers, it gives a nice flavor and a bit of heat that goes well with most Asian food.
