Balsamic Butter Glazed Peas

Go Bold With Butter

How much sweeter could a sugar snap pea get if a snap pea could get sweeter?

Add a dose of balsamic vinegar, a couple of pats of butter and simmer to find out. And the heights they’ll reach with a splash of orange juice? Snap! Sweet.

Pair the sugar snap peas with a nicely grilled chicken or a broiled fish and you’ll find it hard to resist sopping your forked protein with the buttery balsamic reduction.

Balsamic Butter Glazed Peas
Serves 4-6


3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 pound sugar snap peas
1/2 teaspoon agave syrup or sugar
1/2 orange, juiced
1 tablespoon orange zest
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon mint leaves, slivered


Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add butter and cook until melted. Add balsamic vinegar and agave syrup and cook for 2 minutes to reduce, stirring occasionally. Add sugar snap peas and cook for 3 minutes, tossing to coat with sauce.

Remove from heat and add juice of orange half, orange zest, salt and pepper and mint slivers and serve.
