It’s that time of year again!
Fresh off the madcap celebration of Mardi Gras, Wednesday marked the beginning of the forty-day Christian season of Lent.
For many households, Lent means a change of diet, as many people choose to give up red meat and poultry.
That change of diet also means a change of pace in the kitchen, as folks switch out one set of main-dish recipes for another.
And even though at this time of year, we enjoy a Mickey-D’s Filet-o-Fish sandwich as much as the next guy, there are so many more delicious ways to enjoy fish during Lent.
Chef Amy put on her thinking cap (should we call it her thinking toque?) and has created some new main-dish fish recipes, in case yours is one of the households that are observing this Lenten custom.
- Tilapia with Pink Peppercorn Beurre Blanc
- Balsamic Orange Ginger Cod, black cod baked in a foil packet full of citrus flavors;
- Sesame Salmon With Lemon and Green Onion, coated in a pretty blend of white and black sesame seeds, served with arugula dressed with a green onion sauce;
- Parmesan-Encrusted Tilapia, dredged in grated Parmesan (duh), bread crumbs and some Gusto Italian Pizza Seasoning;
- Baja Grilled Fish – red snapper or bass, spiced with chile powder, oregano and cumin, fresh from the grill;
- Tequila-marinated Salmon, with Habanero Salt and Lime Fresco Butter — just like it sounds (and absolutely delicious).
