Seafood Swaps for Lent Fish Fridays

Feb 23, 2016 02:32AM, Published by Flint SR, Categories: Family, Acadiana Life Family Features, Family Features Food




Switching to seafood on Fridays during Lent? You can still make casual Friday favorites by swapping meat for seafood in easy meals like burgers and quesadillas.

“Seafood is perfect for a quick Friday night dinner because fish filets and shrimp don’t take much time to cook,” said Chef Kevan Vetter of the McCormick Kitchens. “However, it’s easy to run out of ideas during the long Lenten season. Try this salmon burger recipe – the patties take just 10 minutes to cook in a skillet and are full of flavor from Cajun seasoning.”

From Cajun Salmon Burgers to Island Shrimp Quesadillas, McCormick is serving up flavorful seafood inspiration for the six Fish Fridays of Lent. Need more seafood inspiration? Find tips and recipes at McCormick.com, and be sure to check out Pinterest and Facebook.
