After having so much food for the past week, I fried this piece of Threadfin block and had it with plain white porridge  ........ light and refreshing.





Just pan fry the fish block  ..... top it up with some fried garlic and ginger slices, garnish with chopped spring onions, drizzle in light soya sauce.... simple and easy!
