Asparagus & Snow Peas with a touch of Asia

A different take on asparagus and snow peas as a side dish.

Get everything ready beforehand as this can be cooked in the wok in a few minutes

You will need for 4 people

400gms Fresh Asparagus, washed, trimmed and cut in half
2 good handfuls of Snow Peas, whole
2 Spring Onions, sliced on an angle
Splash of Vegetable Oil
1 tablespoon of water with a pinch of Sugar

Mixed together

1 teaspoon of Sesame Oil
1 teaspoon of Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon of Dry Sherry
1 tablespoon of White Wine Vinegar
Sweet Chilli Sauce


Heat the oil in the Wok until almost smoking.

Toss in all the asparagus and stir fry briskly for 1 minute. Then add the water and sugar, put a lid on and leave foranother minute to steam, shaking Wok a couple of times.

Take lid off.

Toss in the Snow peas, stir briskly and then add the liquid mixture of sesame oil etc. Continue to stir briskly for another minute or so and it is ready.

Can be served hot, straight from the wok or equally acceptable warm.

A sprinkling of Fresh Coriander leaves and a grind of Black Pepper will give it another lift.
