Recipe flavors were good however I would make a couple changes. Omit the first step re: putting on the oil then cooking for 5 mins. Instead, put on the the soy mixture in the beginning and then broil for about 3 mins. Much better. The oil in the beginning prevents the soy mixture from adhering to the peas.

Delicious hot, better at room temp - which was perfect since I brought it to a potluck. The dish got rave reviews. I made a few changes for personal taste and lack of listed ingredients: 1 clove of minced garlic added to the olive oil instead of the garlic flavored oil; 10 drops of Tabasco instead of chili oil, but next time I'll add more; and more brown sugar - about two tablespoons - yum! I used sugar snap peas fresh picked from my garden and they retained their crunch even when I ate the leftovers later. This one's a keeper!

Fantastic! To keep the calories down even more I broiled the peas with out oil. I don't think they need it! Then added fresh garlic to the soy sauce, used crushed red pepper flakes instead of the chili and I doubled the sugar, sesame oil is perfect. Loved it! Can't wait to make this with green beans too. Next time I will sprinkle the sesame seeds on right before serving so they don't sink to the bottom with the sauce.
