Remove and discard the stem end and string from each sugar snap pod.
Heat the olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the sugar snap peas, salt and pepper and saute, tossing occasionally for 3 to 5 minutes, until the sugar snap peas are crisp tender.
Place the sugar snap peas in a serving bowl, sprinkle with sea salt and serve.
