Get a skillet really, really hot before adding the snap peas; they make a fun popping sound when they hit the pan. Then put the skillet straight into a hot oven, tossing the peas every few minutes so they don’t burn.

  1. 1 tablespoon pure olive oil
  2. 2 pounds sugar snap peas, ends trimmed and strings discarded
  3. 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon olive oil (see Note)
  4. Flaky sea salt, such as Maldon
  5. 1/4 cup mint leaves, torn
  1. Preheat the oven to 500°. Set a large, ovenproof skillet over high heat until very hot, about 2 minutes. Add the pure olive oil and swirl to coat the pan. Add the snap peas, toss a few times and transfer the skillet to the oven. Cook for 2 minutes, then carefully toss the peas a few times. Return the skillet to the oven and cook for 2 minutes longer, until the peas are crisp-tender. Toss the peas with the lemon oil and season with salt. Transfer to a serving bowl. Scatter the mint on top and serve.
Notes

Olive oil pressed or infused with lemon is available at most supermarkets and specialty food stores.
