Snow Peas With Ginger
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.
