Snow Peas with Toasted Sesame Seeds

I Heart Cooking Clubs is featuring a new chef. After a fond farewell to Ellie Krieger, we are cooking from the recipes of Australian chef Curtis Stone. I didn't really know a lot about Mr. Stone, but after looking at his website Curtis Stone, I was intrigued. I don't own any of his books, but his web site is very generous....lots of recipes are available. 

It's been a couple of very busy weeks. I didn't think I would have time to post this week, but there are a lot of fresh, tasty and easy recipes available. I chose a side dish. The recipe is found here: Snow Peas with Toasted Sesame Seeds.  This is the second time I have ever cooked with snow peas. They are a new favorite of mine. I already had most of the ingredients on hand. All I needed to do was purchase the snow peas and shallots. The most time consuming part of the dish is stringing the snow peas. Otherwise, it comes together quickly as a stir-fry. 
I served this yummy dish with Jane Brody's Stovestop BBQ Chicken, one of our favorite chicken dinners.
