40+ Fish Recipes For Lent

Fish recipes for Lent are usually on the menu. Get 40+ fish recipes, plus an additional 40+ salmon recipes, on you’re Christian, Lent means no meat on Fridays. For me, personally, I also avoid fish. But I know a lot of people eat fish instead because it’s a good alternative. So for you people, I’m in the process of putting together a bunch of seafood recipes for Lent lists. This one is 40+ Fish Recipes For Lent.

In the upcoming weeks (because I’m an office of one, so I have to do one thing at a time), I’m going to have a Shrimp Recipes For Lent list and Shellfish Recipes for Lent list. When those are up, I’ll link them from here.

Now yes, I realize that shrimp falls under the shellfish category. But so many people like shrimp but aren’t crazy about other shellfish. And I had so many shrimp recipes to include, I didn’t want them to get lost in the shellfish category.

And I felt that way about salmon too. Salmon, it appears, is the most common fish to cook at home. So while I was making this list, I separated the salmon recipes for Lent out from the fish recipes for Lent. I ended up with over 40 of each.

Why 40? Because 40 days of Lent, guys.
