Snap peas with mint

As promised, I'm back to share this super simple yet totally delicious snap pea recipe with you! Thanks so much for the birthday wishes. The day was a ton of fun, and....lobster is TOMORROW NIGHT! Tummy rumbling!

In a 12-inch skillet, bring 1 cup of water and 1 tablespoon of butter to a boil over high heat.

Add 1 pound of trimmed snap peas. Cover and cook until bright green, about 2 minutes.

Remove the lid and reduce the heat to medium. Continue cooking, tossing occasionally, until the peas are crisp-tender and the water has evaporated, 2 to 4 minutes.

Remove from the heat and toss with 1/2 cup packed, thinly sliced fresh mint leaves. Season with salt and pepper.  

Serve with...LOBSTER! Or just pork.

Pretty snap peas! Wish I had enough room for them in my garden!

Goodness, these look so good! I forget about snap peas...I'm such a goober when it comes to the side dishes. The carnivore in me always makes the dinner plans :) I'ma bookmark this little gem though! Have fun with your lobster dinner, make sure to eat yourself into a food coma!

Simple and quick to prepare,I just made last night and I used frozen peas.It's a very good taste, It's a combination I never would have thought of. The mint flavor is so strong.
