I picked up some English peas recently from Trader Joe’s. and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do a fancy recipe with them or if I wanted to keep it simple. I ended up keeping it simple by making these peas with butter and shallots. I boiled the peas for just a couple of minutes then added them to a skillet with some shallots sautéed in a bit of butter then seasoned them with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. Super quick. Super simple. Super tasty. Enough said.
Peas with Butter and Shallots:
- 10 oz fresh English Peas (frozen would work great too)
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 small shallot, diced
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
How to Make Peas with Butter and Shallots
Cook the peas in a boiling pot of water for 1½ – 2 minutes (less time if using frozen peas). Remove from the water and drain.
Heat the butter over medium heat then add the shallots and cook stirring constantly for 2-3 minutes. Add the cooked/drained peas to the butter and shallots, mixing well to evenly coat the peas in butter. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
