I’ve never met a pea I didn’t like, but Grilled Sugar Snap Peas and Soy Ginger Sauce take the game to a whole new level!
I was looking for something a little out of the ordinary when I put together this recipe for Grilled Snap Peas and Soy Ginger Sauce. I fired up the grill and knew right where I was headed with those plump and succulent sugar snap peas. This was going to be a snap! No pun intended.
And it was! Honey, ginger, garlic, and orange zest seasoned up the Soy Ginger Sauce perfectly. The Grilled Snap Peas looked amazing as they cooked on the grill; black sesame seeds left the peas smelling nutty and delicious. Here’s where everything went slightly awry.
My plan was to plate the peas edamame style and use the Soy Ginger Sauce for dipping those fat little morsels into. Problem was the sauce was to thin. I couldn’t get enough of that delicious sauce on the Grilled Snap Peas. A change of plans was called for. The Grilled Snap Peas were placed in a bowl and that delectable sauce was poured on top. A few tosses of those luscious snap peas was all it took. A masterpiece in a bowl!
I am ashamed to admit, I sat there and ate that whole bowlful of Grilled Sugar Snap Peas. I couldn’t help myself. I was like a woman on a mission, nothing would deter me. Do I regret it? Nope, not one little bit!
