There are few things I like more than sweet and delicious fresh spring peas. Here is an easy recipe for peas with prosciutto or bacon that makes for a great side dish.
- 1 1/2 cups fresh shucked English peas
- ½ Tbsp olive oil
- 2 shallots, peeled and minced
- 2 oz. prosciutto, diced or 1-2 strips bacon, diced
- 1 tsp. sugar
- salt and pepper
- In a saucepan, boil the fresh peas in water until they are slightly soft and bright green, about 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
- In a skillet, saute the prosciutto or bacon over medium heat in the olive oil until crisp.
- Add the shallots and sugar to the skillet and cook until the shallots soften.
- Add the peas to the skillet to heat, briefly, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
