    A nice quick meal. You can prepare it as written or substitute any other white fish and sauteed asparagus for the snow peas.

      We LOVED this recipe. The snow peas are a lovely base - bright, crisp and healthy. The fish is prepared simply. The topping of almonds in butter is a stunning and most delicious finish. This is a recipe I would be proud to serve guests; and feel wonderful doing so because it's so healthy. Thank you for posting!

      This is my all time favorite! I usually use regular frozen peas since I have them on hand. Make this recipe (with pea pods)for those you want to impress. Great recipe, Riverlivin'.

      This is a great recipe for those of us who grow our own snow peas! I used chopped walnuts in place of the almonds, and tossed some extra parsley in with the butter and nut topping. Thanks for posting Riverlivin [Updated 7/6/12 to add photo that shows the almond topping]
