Easy Parmesan Panko Sugar Snap Peas Recipe

I love roasting vegetables for our side dishes often. I know people think Southerners fry everything, but that’s not always the case. For me, oven frying and roasting vegetables until crisp and golden are two of my absolute favorite cooking techniques. Just like this recipe for sugar snap peas, broccoli and cauliflower are also delicious roasted in the oven. How do you make the best roasted sugar snap peas? Checkout these tips:

  • Ingredients you’ll need to make the best recipe for Sugar Snap Peas: 4 cups of fresh sugar snap peas, panko breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, olive oil, onion powder, lemon pepper and garlic salt.
  • When roasting any peas in the oven it’s important to arrange these sugar snap peas in a single layer on the baking pan so they’ll bake crisp and golden and not steam. Stacked peas will steam rather than roast.
  • I don’t recommend roasting frozen sugar snap peas. Fresh is best.
  • Should you choose to double the recipe, don’t crowd the pan. It’s best to use two pans instead to give them plenty of room to crisp in the oven.
  • It’s very little trouble to grate fresh Parmesan cheese. It makes the world of difference in flavor and you’ll never go back to the canned stuff again.
  • I’ve never found it necessary to blanch the sugar snap peas prior to roasting. Give them a good cleaning and let it dry on the counter on paper towels for a bit before proceeding with the recipe.
  • I don’t typically serve these roasted sugar snap peas with a sauce but you could. A drizzle of sweet hot Asian chili sauce or a brown sugar Teriyaki marinade would both be yummy.
  • While these peas are best made and eaten, you can store leftover roasted sugar snap peas for up to 2 days in the refrigerator, Store in a container lined with a paper towel to absorb moisture.
  • You can reheat leftover roasted panko Parmesan sugar snap peas on a sheet pan in a preheat 375°F oven for a few minutes. You can also reheat in single portions in the microwave. Please note when doing so, the crumbs will not stay crisp once they’ve been chilled.
