MAKING SNAP PEAS IN AIR FRYER:
Rinse snap peas under cool water and pat them dry completely with paper towels, then trim ends and then place snap peas in a medium-sized bowl.
Measure and pour sesame oil, garlic, and salt over snap peas. Toss peas in bowl with oil mixture until they are fully coated.
Transfer peas to the air fryer basket, spreading them out in a single layer so they don’t overlap and can cook evenly.
Air Fry at 380 degrees F for 6-8 minutes. Serve when finished cooking.
I make this recipe in my Cosori 5.8-quart air fryer. Depending on your air fryer size and wattages, cook time may need to be adjusted 1-2 more minutes.
You can serve these in a stir fry with Asian flavors, or mixed in with Air Fryer Sweet and Sour Chicken or with Air Fryer Tuna Steaks. They are also delicious with Air Fryer Teriyaki Pork Chops.
English peas are the most traditional looking, they are full pods with large round peas inside. Snow peas are flatter than a snap pea and have really small peas inside. Sugar snap peas are a cross between snow and garden peas, they have a more rounded pod with a smaller size pea.
Store leftovers in an airtight container or resealable storage bag in your refrigerator for 2-3 days. If you are going to freeze leftovers place them in an air-tight, sealed container or freezer storage bag for 1-3 months. Prior to storing them let snap peas completely cool.
Snap Peas are a healthy source of complex carbohydrates and have a good amount of fiber and protein. They are a low-calorie nutritious source that includes several vitamins and minerals such as potassium, iron and vitamin K, A and C. They are also a great source of folic acid and essential B-complex vitamins.
