Top-ranked recipe named "Sugar Snap Peas with Lemon, Garlic and Basil"
Blanching of Sugar Snap Peas: Bring 6 cups water to brisk boil in 3- or 4-quart saucepan. Add salt and peas and cook until crisp-tender, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, depending on size of peas. Drain peas, shock in ice water, drain again and pat dry. Peas can be set aside for up to one hour. Seasoning: Heat oil over medium heat in medium saute pan. Add zest and garlic; saute until garlic is soft but not browned, about 2 minutes. Add peas, lemon juice, and basil; too to combine. Cook until just heated through, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste; serve immediately. From Cooks Illustrated, May/June 1997 Issue. WONDERFUL! Posted to MM-Recipes Digest V4 #148 by "Marijo Yates"

Mrsswill 2 years agoLoved this recipe with the ingredients added just as they were instructed. Failed to shock them, but they were still very flavorful.
Evostance 2 years agoAgreed, far to much lemon. I think half the amount would do nicely.
flower_child 4 years agomaybe just a tiny bit too much lemon, but this recipe is excellent! make sure to use good quality snap peas.
