Blistered Snap Peas With Burrata & Mint

June 3, 2017


IMG_6022Grilled sugar snap peas drizzled with lemon dressing make the perfect summer side dish.  A quick char will brighten their sweet flavor while maintaining a crunchy texture. Combining these legumes with mint and burrata will make a meal on its own or a lovely companion to grilled fish. They were delicious off the grill but we liked them even better cold the next day. Snap peas contain a wealth of vitamins and other nutrients; fiber, carbohydrates, protein, vitamins A and C, healthy fats, iron, potassium, magnesium, folic acid and antioxidants.

Blistered Snap Peas With Burrata & Mint

4 Servings

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil

1/4 teaspoon salt plus 1/2 teaspoon, divided

12 oz. snap peas, strings removed

1 cup lightly packed mint leaves

1 lb. burrata or buffalo mozzarella, cut into pieces

Lay a triple layer of heavy-duty foil over a baking rack and with a point of a scissors, poke 1/2 holes to form circles. (or use a lattice grill) Light the grill on high heat.

Whisk the lemon juice, honey, and mustard in a small bowl. gradually whisk in olive oil until combined. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.

In a large bowl, toss the peas with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper.

Spread the peas on the foil, grill until lightly charred, about 2 minutes. Stir until hot about 1 minute longer. Transfer the peas to a bowl and toss with mint and half of the dressing.

Arrange the peas on a platter. Spoon burrata on top of the peas and drizzle with remaining dressing.

    I am adapting this recipe tonight – sadly not a fan of mint or sugar snap peas BUT I plan to make your dressing with grilled green beans, basil and burrata to go with my salmon tonight – thanks for the inspiration!!

    Love your interpretation. Honestly, I’m not a big fan of snap peas….this recipe changed me. I think keeping them crispy was the key. Let me know how your recipe turns out.

    It was so good, but I realized after I ate my dinner, I forgot to add the basil! 😛
