Simple Spring Peas/Freeze Fried Peas and Baby Onions Saute Cooking Recipes

Spring Pea and Baby Onion Saute


Enjoy this dish often during the short period when fresh peas are in the market. If boiling onions are not available, frozen baby onions are an acceptable substitute. Freeze fried peas are fine, too, but are practically a different vegetable from the just picked fresh green peas. Serve with roast chicken or turkey.


Makes 6 to 8 servings

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 pint (10 ounces) boiling onions, boiled in water to cover for 1 minute, drained and peeled and then simmered in salted water for 5 minutes, and drained; or 2 cups thawed frozen baby onions, simmered in salted water for 5 minutes, and drained

  • 2 pound fresh young peas in the pod, shelled, simmered in water for 5 minutes, and drained

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill, plus additional for garnishing

  1. Melt the butter in a medium size skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring, until just beginning to turn golden, 6 to 8 minutes.

  2. Stir in the peas. Toss to coat and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice. Season well with salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons of dill. Cook over low heat until the peas are tender, about 5 minutes. Serve very hot, garnished with the additional dill.
