An Unusual Version Of Hungarian Fisherman’s Stew
It’s always nice to see people tackling new ways of preparing a traditional dish. Get Fit With Mindy has decided to take on Halaszle which is a famous Hungarian Fisherman’s Stew and possibly the country’s most famous fish dish.

Traditional Hungarian Goulash Soup

I really enjoyed making my first batch of goulash soup and I thought this recipe was unique and delicious.
