Garlic sugar snap peas is a very easy side dish recipe.  To make garlic sugar snap peas, all you need to do is to pan fry the sugar snap peas with a little bit of oil, then add minced garlic, salt and pepper at the end.

For best results, make sure you don’t overcook the peas – the sugar snap peas should still be crispy.  Overcooked peas will be limp and soggy, and you certainly don’t want that :) When it comes to cooking the sugar snap peas, it’s better to err on the undercooked side!

Garlic sugar snap peas are delicious hot or cold.  If cooking right before dinner, I serve them hot.  If there are leftovers, just store them in refrigerator and serve them cold the next day.
