Here is a wonderful side dish that celebrates some of my favorite flavors – fresh sugar snap peas, sauteed until they start to brown , adding heat from using rounds of thai red chiles cooled by the use of some fresh chopped mint! It’s a perfect dish and simple to prepare. Enjoy!
From by the bay, wishing you sugar snap food memories!
