Recipe Notes

If  using  this  rice  noodles  often  times  it  is  not  necessary to precook the   noodles.  Just  portion  the  individual noodle  cakes  into the   serving  bowls and   pour  the   hot  soup  over  it.  In  2  minutes  the  noodles  will soften  and  be  ready to  be eaten.

When  using  thinly sliced  fish  fillets there is  no  need  to precook  it.  Examples  of  mild  whitefish are - tilapia, cod, bass, , haddock, or  snapper.   The  rule  to  go  buy is  to  get  the  freshest  fish   you  can  find.
