Description: This is a simple and quick recipe that uses hake or cod and vegetables. The method of preparation is very popular in Spain as well.

Afterwards he would do the stir frying and then we would all sit down for a nice evening of food and games.

I don’t really know what the name of the dish is but we just call it Continue reading “Thai Noodles”
