Years ago when I first started cooking, I attempted a large meal (international) for people I worked with. Let me just say bless them for sitting thru that mess. I was way out of my league, I had only been cooking a very short time and never tried anything more in depth than pork chops ok. It was my first "International" cookbook, I picked a recipe from each major country. A couple were hits and one was asperagus con le herbe, which was a French recipe and is just a fancy way to say aspargus with herbs, so I simply applied it to sugar snaps.

How to Make Sugar Snap Peas con le herbe

Step-by-Step

  • 1Earlier in the day I parboil my sugar snap peas for 3 minutes in chicken broth. Then I spread them out on a cookie sheet and place them in the ice box to chill. The "expert chefs" on TV will tell you to stick them in iced water but I have found that washes out the flavor I am trying to build and waterlogs them so I do not do that.
  • 2About 10 minutes before dinner, throw the butter in a skillet. Melt it down and add the shallot and sauté a couple of minutes till tender. Now add the garlic and herbs and sauté 1 minute, now throw the peas in and season as desired with Morton’s. Sauté these about 5 minutes over medium heat till peas are hot and crisp tender.
  • 3If you like them a bit more tender then you should boil them longer and not try to cook them in the butter.
  • 4Notes: please feel free to use your own combination of herbs or match the herbs to your dinner, if you are having an Italian dinner then use Italian seasonings. I know it may sound weird but I actually love them with fresh dill.
