Ingredients: Metric Units
1 lb. sugar snap peas or snow peas
2 tsp. sherry
2 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. canola oil
1 tsp. sesame oil
2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
The vivid green pea pods add a dramatic element to the table. A great springtime dish.

Try one of the pea pods to see if they need to be strung. If the strings are tough, pull them off.

In a large bowl, toss pea pods with cornstarch, sherry, and salt. Set aside. (Get the rest of the meal mostly ready; this only takes a few minutes to cook.)

When you're ready to cook, heat an electric skillet over high heat (or a wok, of course) and add canola oil. Add pea pods and stir fry to crisp tender.

Remove to serving platter. Drizzle with sesame oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
