Make Side Dishes for Fish
Edited by mahalia jovita b. bugasto, Lynn, Graeme, Robbi and 1 other
Fried fish is one of the most common dishes served at home or even in restaurants. How can we add some spice or twang to our very plain fried fish? You can make your own side dish that will compliment the flavor of the fish and add more options for your taste buds to enjoy. A good example of a great side dish that you can do is stir fried string beans in soy sauce. This will not only accompany the plain fried fish but it will also add texture and flavor to give your taste buds pleasure.
When you eat something that is fried it's usually good to look for something else to go with your fish, chicken, or pork. When you think about adding another dish (but in smaller servings), you want something to make a plain fried dish more enticing to your senses, both your sight and taste. So what are we waiting for? Here are the things you will need for stir fried string beans and the procedure, and once you are done collecting and buying the items you need, then let's start cooking!
