  • 3 cups fresh (or frozen) shelled peas
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh mint leaves
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Bring a saucepan of water to a rolling boil. Add the peas and boil for about 2-3 minutes, until the peas are bright green and tender. Drain, run with cool water to stop the cooking, and set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a small skillet, then add the peas and mint. Cook for a minute or two until warmed through and coated with the minty buttery sauce. Season generously with salt and pepper and serve right away.
