Tired of just peas and butter? The mint and lemon zest give these peas a flavor boost.
In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium-low heat. Add 2 thinly sliced scallions (below); cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 2 minutes.
Add 3 packages (10 ounces each) thawed frozen peas, 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until peas are tender and heated through, about 5 minutes.
Add 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh mint, 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest, and 2 tablespoons butter; swirl pan until butter is creamy, 1 minute more.
Cutting Scallions: Trim root end of scallions. Thinly slice white and light-green parts crosswise.
