This dish, a former favorite recipe in Chef David Chang’s restaurants, is a play on horseradish wasabi peas. Sugar snap peas retain their integrity, vibrancy, and crunch when they’re steamed in the microwave. Seasoned with soy sauce, butter, salt, and lemon juice, then topped with grated fresh horseradish, and sliced radishes, this simple side dish packs a punch.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.
