Author Notes

This is recipe is about having the freshest, highest quality ingredients at hand and letting them do the talking. I love this dish. Super simple, but can only be had at this time of year. I can still get fresh peas in the midwest and tomatoes are at perfection. I use the best butter that I can buy, a beautiful Chardonnay, and sea salt to make this perfect. I am putting down that this feeds 2 people, but I could eat the entire plate and a glass of Chardonnay and feel completely satisfied. —MyCommunalTable

  1. In my favorite 10 inch skillet, I melt the butter over med-low heat.
