This week for tech were were making Fish kebabs and potato salad. I was working with Oh Hsen, SaKae, Nazella and I. The fish were were using was Salmon. One thing I learned was, to not drop potatoes into hot boiling water because, the water could burn you. Once the salmon was cooked and the potato salad was made, we tried it. It was really delicious and I really liked the potato salad.
