I was looking for something new to do with the sugar snap peas. We bought a giant bag at our local bulk item store. While we typically eat them raw, I decided to take a different route since we had so many. My children love Asian food and sesame chicken, so I got inspired and dragged out the wok. I believe using the ingredients that I did, that I would still consider this a healthy recipe considering we normally just snap the ends and eat them raw. They would make a decent side to any Asian-inspired dish, or if you're like my husband...add it to any type of dish and simply call it "fusion."
