1In a large sauce pan place enough salted water for cooking the snow pea pods. Bring the water to boiling and add pea pods.

5Cook fish for 4 to 5 minutes until it is easy to remove with a spatula.
6Gently turn fish and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more or until fish flakes easily with a fork or is golden brown.
7Arrange peas on a serving platter and place fish on top of peas. (I arranged 4 serving plates instead of serving platter)and served roasted potatoes as a side dish.
8In the same skillet reduce heat to medium and add butter.
9When butter begins to melt, stir in almonds.
10Cook for 30 to 60 seconds or until butter is melted and nuts are lightly toasted (don't let the butter burn).
