INGREDIENTS

  • 2 pounds large asparagus-peeled and cut on the diagonal into 1 1/2-inch lengths
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds sugar snap peas
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Fresh lemon zest

DIRECTIONS

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Drain the asparagus and rinse under cold water. Drain again and pat dry.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet until shimmering. Add shallots, garlic and sugar snap peas and cook over moderately high heat until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add the asparagus and a generous pinch each of salt and pepper and cook until warmed through and tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a large platter, zest with lemon and serve the vegetables immediately.
