Fish and Shrimp with Black Beans Stirfry is one of the quickie dish that I was able to fix for dinner at one time I came home late. Stirfry dishes are in my opinion a better way of cooking a quick dinner instead of just simply fan frying or deep frying something out from the refrigerator. Stirfry dishes involves a combination of ingredients, it could be anything that is available as long as the ingredients goes well and compliments with its other.
Here is the recipe of my Fish and Shrimp with Black Beans Stirfry.
