Story Behind this Recipe

Freshly picked sugar snap peas out of the garden are sweet and delicious eaten raw! But they're a little too raw for me. I've heard that they taste better fried than boiled, so I experimented with it. It certainly seals the taste inside by pan-frying them, and is closer to the unique taste of the raw sugar snap peas.
