"I was in Spain for Thanks Giving and I bought a cooking magazine called “Comer Bien” Great recipes. This is one of them. The original name of the recipe is “Hojaldre de merluza y calabacin” The recipe yields 4 portions; my daughter and I eat 2 one day and we had the other 2 the next day. It reheats very well and actually tasted even better the second day. You can substitute the hake for “your favorite” white fish."
