Spring Pea Green Curry with Black Cod and Strawberry

Rated as 4.25 out of 5 Stars

"I've always loved green curries, but until a recent visit to Al's Place I'd never thought of using fresh, sweet peas as the base. It was amazing, and after only a few bites I knew I'd steal this idea and make it my own. Sorry, Al. You can use snow peas or English peas in place of sugar snap peas, if desired."

I am a huge fan of chef John and love everything that he cooks. Since he raved about this, and because I love curry I had very high expectations. But, I found the snap peas didn't meld well wi...
