I served these peas with my regular salmon cakes recipe (please ignore that I ate two serving of salmon, it was a rough day ok?). M told me several times we needed to make these peas again. They are light and herby. This is probably the only time I think it WORTH IT to get the fresh herbs. No subbing the dried stuff, ok?
2 tsp unsalted butter, divided
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 1/2 to 2 cups torn leaf lettuce
2 cups peas, frozen or freshly shelled pea pods
2 heaping tbsp chopped fresh mint leaves
1 tsp chopped fresh tarragon
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
In a medium saucepan, heat 1 tsp butter over medium heat. Stir in scallions and lettuce. Cook for about 2 minutes or until the lettuce is slightly wilted.
Add the peas, mint, tarragon, sugar and salt. Stir to combine. Cover and cook until peas are tender, between 4 and 6 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in remaining tsp butter.
