Need a few new ideas for fish recipes for Lent? These 31 delicious pescatarian dishes range from fried to baked and everything in between.
The custom of abstaining from eating meat during Lent dates back to the second century. Catholics are expected to abstain from eating the meat of a warm blooded animal, such as beef, pork or chicken, beginning on Ash Wednesday and then each Friday during Lent, concluding on Good Friday.
Since fish are cold blooded, many Catholics have adopted the tradition of “Fish Friday.” But even after Lent is over, adding more fish to your diet is a wonderful way to add more nutrients and healthy protein to your diet. While fried certainly is delicious, it’s not the only method for preparing fish. Dive fin first into the delicious world of fish with these tasty fish recipes from myself and other bloggers.
