Green Beans and Sugar Snap Peas with Hot Pepper Relish

Served hot, these beans are delicious with grilled tuna or swordfish-or halibut, if you are lucky enough to find it fresh. For lunch, try this snappy bean mixture together with a cheese omelet. I also like to add them to a cold buffet, along with cold poached fish and cold roast lamb, beef or chicken.

Makes 6 to 8 servings

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 tablespoons chopped green bell pepper

  • 2 tablespoons minced onion

  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced; or 1 teaspoon minced habanero pepper

  • 1 small clove garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 pound thinnest fresh green beans, topped and tailed; or one 16 ounce package frozen thinnest green beans, thawed

  • 1 pound sugar snap peas, topped and strung; or one 16 ounce package frozen sugar snap peas, thawed

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

  1. In a large bowl, combine the cilantro, bell pepper, onion, jalapeno pepper, and garlic. Stir n the lemon juice, salt, pepper and olive oil. Set aside.

  2. Steam the beans and peas, separately, in a steamer basket or a colander, covered, over simmering water until crisply tender. Toss with the melted butter. Serve the beans and snap peas hot, or at room temperature with the cold relish spooned over them.
