Living in Catalonia (Spain) has been the best place to experiment all kind of mediterranean food, Noodles (or fideus in catalan) were invented by Italians, but catalans adapted perfectly with their cuisine.
In catalan, "rossejat" means toasted, and I was told this recipe is from the south of Catalonia,
I'm gonna improvise this dish, add a little changes in the easy way of course but im sure catalan people wont be offended. And the breaded fish will be tasty and crunchy complement for this mediterranean recipe.
