Fish is iconic Lenten food.
From Friday night church fish fries … to freezer fish sticks, unassumingly tucked next to mac and cheese in a desperate attempt to keep the family happy on (yet another!) meatless Friday …
For about six weeks every spring, fish reigns supreme on Friday nights.
But poor fish … somehow its superstar power dims just a bit once Lent has passed. People stop racking their brains for fish recipes, and their mac and cheese sidles up next to meatloaf or sautéed chicken instead.
But why, friends? Why?!?
We’re definitely setting out to change all of that today!
Fish is versatile, lean and incredibly nutritious (any day, every day)! It can be rich and buttery, or mild and flaky … prepared with virtually any cooking method imaginable, or perfectly not-cooked-at-all (hello, sushi!).
So, as Lent winds down, we’re serving up a fresh dollop of inspiration to get you through … 33 to-die-for fish recipes from some of our favorite bloggers. Your family will breathe a sigh of relief when an entirely new fish creation greets them at the table this Friday night!
But when Lent is over, friends … don’t leave healthy, super-easy fish in the dust as you run back to meat-filled Friday nights! This fantastic line-up of fish recipes will keep you happily (healthfully!) serving up fish all year long!
