Sautéed peas with salt, pepper, and shallots! I didn’t use a recipe in making this, just added as I went along and this side dish turned out delicious!
I diced 2 shallots and sautéed them in a small pan with a tablespoon of butter. Once browned, I added in a cup of frozen peas and continued to sauté until peas were fully cooked through. Add salt and pepper and it’s ready to serve!
When Daniel and I were in Las Vegas celebrating our 1 Year Wedding Anniversary years ago, he ordered some Tempura Green Beans. They were the best he ever had! So of course when we returned home, I tried to replicate these. I made ones from the Red Cat Cookbook that were ok, but not on par with the ones he had in Las Vegas. A few weeks ago, I attempted these again. These were a bit better, but still not what DH expected. He did say these were flavorful and crispy. Just note that the recipe makes a lot of batter. It may be a good idea to cut the recipe in half if making these for 2 people.
