Fish For Fridays: Recipe Roundup

Fish and seafood recipes for Fridays during Lent. If you are looking to add more fish and seafood to your diet, you’ll find lots of delicious ideas here!

Growing up in an Italian Catholic family, eating fish on Fridays during Lent was a tradition for us. It was never really explained to me why we did it, (though now I know it is a form of abstinence) we just did and because I’ve always loved fish I just never questioned it. To this day, I still practice fish for Fridays during Lent and love to cook it up for my family who loves fish and (most) seafood as much as I do.

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while then you have probably seen me post lots and lots of fish recipes…I wanted to bring some forward from the archives – like the Blackened Tilapia Sandwich with Cilantro Lime Mayonnaise shown above – for anyone who is looking for new ways to serve fish and seafood, especially during Lent. These recipes would also be perfect for someone who’s just starting to cook with fish.

Here are few more of my favorites, plus a few that I’ve come across on the blogs:

Fish Oreganata

Sweet and Spicy Salmon

(this is the recipe that got my kids hooked on salmon!)

Baked Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta

Cajun Baked Salmon Cakes - great for lunches or dinner. I love making these for meal prep and having them ready all week. Recipe via
