Grilled Salmon with Homemade Tarter Sauce and Minted Pea Cups

I have always loved fresh peas. The color is fabulous and taste suburb. Adding mint to peas, adds a fresh bright note to an often times boring side dish. I wanted to serve my pea side in lettuce cups for presentation. They are also fun to eat in a cup, much like you would lettuce wraps. I paired my pea side with simple grilled salmon and homemade tater sauce. The meal was delicious, healthy and pretty to eat. Afterall, we eat with our eyes ;)

Minted Peas
(serves 4-6)

1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp minced shallot
1 tbsp minced garlic
4 cups fresh or frozen peas 
1/4-1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup freshly chopped mint

In a large saute pan, add butter over medium heat. Then add shallot and garlic and saute until lightly browned and aromatic. Next, add peas and saute until tender. Reduce heat to low and add in cream until well blended. Turn off heat and add fresh mint. Serve immediatley.
