Mardi Gras, French for “fat Tuesday,” has come and gone. Today is Ash Wednesday, marking the first day of Lent. During this season, it is customary to abstain from eating meat (including chicken and fowl) on Fridays and holy days. Which brings us to Fish Fridays!
Growing up Catholic, I had the hardest time figuring what to eat during Lent. I’ve complied a round-up fish recipes that I would have loved to have during my first year living on my own!
Friday night is the start of the weekend. No need to spent hours in the kitchen preparing dinner. It’s time to relax and enjoy. This oven-baked salmon with clementines and fennel by Stephanie of Everyday Feasts is the first step to a relaxing weekend.
Charlene of Chichilicious claims she’s no professional, but I am in awe of her food and her photography! My mom is going to love me even more when I maker her Charlene’s Salmon Teriyaki. Bonus points for her super easy homemade teriyaki sauce!
What an excellent family meal! Sonali of Sugar el al takes this classic French seafood soup and turns it into something family friendly and totally approachable. Don’t you want a taste of this bouillabaisse French seafood soup?
Love seafood but don’t like the way it makes your kitchen smell? Neither does Rachel. Try out her seafood bake which uses foil pouches to not only control the aroma, but it makes clean up a breeze. Mix and match veggies and seafood to your tastes!
Now, this is the way I like to enjoy my fist. Deep fried. This soy ginger sea bream by Rosemary of Cooking in Sens looks spicy and delicious! I can only imagine the flavors that are created by mixing fresh ginger with soy sauce, sesame oil, and chills! YUM!
