Fresh Green Peas and Sugar Snap Peas in Sesame Dressing
While we could easily prepare this dish with peas alone, I will give in and allow for this blend of the classic and new fangled. The seasoning here is also a bit of a new twist, at least for me, though I would find this to be more predictable with snow peas. The oriental flavor can be taken up a notch with the addition of a little freshly grated ginger, and a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds.  
With the heaviness of the sesame oil in particular, and also the ginger should you choose to go that route, you’ll need a rich wine to pair with this recipe. Something that has enough power to pair with the oil and soy, yet enough of an acid backbone to help cut the fat and highlight the sweetness of the peas. A little spice would also be appreciated here. A rhone styled blend, something with a little Viognier in the mix, would make for an interesting pairing and I wold add in some quickly sauteed chicken, or even better, rabbit to help round out the meal.
