2022 Food box #6 - Grilled Shell Peas (no need to shell!!)
By: Elise Bauer- May 24, 2022
Fresh English or shell peas, in their pods
Balsamic vinegar (optional)
Few fresh mint leaves, thinly sliced (optional)
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Prepare your grill for high, direct heat.
Place a handful of peas into a bowl and drizzle olive oil over them. Sprinkle generously with kosher salt. Toss to coat with oil and salt.
Place peas on hot grill, arranged in a way so that they don't fall through the grill grates. Grill a few minutes on each side, so that the peas are well charred, and sufficiently cooked so that the peas are tender inside.
Remove to a bowl and drizzle with a little balsamic and toss with a little mint if you want.
Eat like edamame... Plop the pod in your mouth and scrape against the salty, charred surface of the pod to extract the peas. Discard the empty pods.
