Grilled Snap Peas and Soy Ginger Sauce

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!

Grilled Snap Peas and Soy Ginger Sauce
The beauty of this recipe is the Grilled Snap Peas can be served hot, warm, or cold. Once the peas come off of the grill, put in a bowl and pour on the sauce. The peas can be served immediately or chilled at this point. Delicious and addictive either way! The Soy Ginger Sauce makes more than you may need for this recipe,but can be saved for a delicious salad dressing or marinade for another day.
  • 1 Pound Sugar Snap Peas, washed with strings removed along the seams.
  • 1½ tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp sesame oil, divided
  • ½ cup soy sauce, low sodium preferred
  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp grated orange rind
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tbsp green onion, chopped
  1. Place a sheet of aluminum foil on grill to place peas on and heat grill.
  2. Place snap peas, olive oil, ½ tsp sesame oil and black sesame seeds in a bowl. Toss ingredients to coat peas with oil and sesame seeds.
  3. Place remaining ingredients in a small jar with a lid, (or small bowl) and shake (or whisk) to incorporate all ingredients together.Set aside.
  4. Place peas on aluminum foil over hot grill. No need to be too perfect here with placement of the peas on the grill. Use a pair of tongs to turn the peas as necessary until peas begin to get slightly charred and turn a bright green. (about 5-6 minutes)
  5. Remove peas from grill and place in a serving bowl.
  6. Shake (or whisk) your Soy Ginger Sauce to mix and pour over Snap Peas. Toss and serve or chill as desired.

    Shari, you now have me on a quest to find those fat fresh peas in a pod; that is one thing we did not grow. This recipe has many of my favorite ingredients and looks absolutely beautiful in your picture. Thanks for sharing this one! Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

      I do hope you can find some Carrie. They are my favorite early harvested vegetable. Thankful for your bloggy friendship. Wishing you and your family a wonderful 4th of July weekend.

    I absolutely love snap peas and ginger sauce is one of my favorites, too. The first time, I actually had ginger sauce was on our honeymoon back almost 8 years ago when we went to a hibachi grill for dinner. Was such fun and will never forget that night. The food was amazing and so of course I would try anything with ginger sauce. So, definitely need to give this a whirl and your comment about eating the whole plate made me laugh, because I totally could see myself doing that, too :)
