Wish for a Fish on a dish?

It that time of the year when you are sad it has come to an end  yet happily excited to be a part of the New year and what it has to offer. While playing Secret Santa to many friends on Facebook and Twitter, www.pescafresh.com decided to be my Santa claus and grant me my #wishforaFish. I wished for fresh Basa as I simply love that soft and tender fish. It has a light flavour and soft texture, making it perfect for adults and kids. And yes my wish came true. Thank-you!!
