Method

  • 01
  • Blanch peas for 1 minute. Refresh, drain and set aside.
  • 02
  • Heat a frying pan over high heat, add oil and sugar snaps and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add peas and stir-fy for another minute. Add XO sauce and cook until aromatic and liquid has evaporated (1-2 minutes). At the last moment, wilt the mustard leaves in the pan, add the lemon juice and serve immediately.
