- Heat sesame oil in a large sauté pan until almost smoking. Add the snow peas and turn the heat down a little so they don't burn. Cook, shaking the pan and tossing, for about 1 1/2 minutes, or until just barely warmed through and tender-crisp.
- Remove from the heat and toss with lemon juice. Set aside to rest for a few moments, partially covered with a plate or splatter screen. Test after 5 minutes; they should still be crisp but more tender. Toss with salt, pepper, and spices. Eat immediately.
