Our Minted Peas with Lemon and Shallots are an easy bright side dish, that pack a ton of flavor! And come together in a snap. They go terrifically with fish, lamb, chicken, and beef alike.
Prepare the peas, see instructions above for fresh and frozen.
Melt the butter in the heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the finely diced shallots and sauté until softened, about 3 minutes. Combine the cream, half of the mint, lemon zest, dash of Kosher sea salt, and freshly cracked black pepper into the softened shallots.
Bring the mixture to a bubble and cook stirring with a flat-bottomed wooden spoon until it begins to thicken about 2 minutes. Add the peas and stir until they're warmed through and coated with sauce about 1 minute. Remove from the heat, taste and season with additional salt and pepper if needed. Garnish with mint and serve.
