Lent began Wednesday, February 14, 2018, starting the 40-day period leading up to Easter that many Catholics observe. Eating fish on Fridays is a long-standing Lenten tradition, but a day without meat doesn’t have to be a fast – you can make it a feast with simple family dinners, easy lunches and dishes worthy of a dinner party. There is life beyond frozen fish sticks!

Picky Kids? You can get beyond the cheese pizza or fried cod for your family dinner. Black Thai Grilled Cod Tacos are easy to make and can be customized for each family member. Like it spicy? Add a little more Siracha.

Looking for an easy lunch solution? Crab and Artichoke Quesadilla are easy to make and easy to pack. Don’t have access to fresh Crablegs? Alaskan Crabmeat is available in cans for your convenience.

Does your family love burgers? Try a Salmon Burger! Make you Salmon patties ahead of time and chill. Cook them in a non-stick skillet and you have dinner in less than 1/2 an hour!

Craving a little green with your Seafood? Try an Asian Sesame Salad with Blackened Shrimp. The chopping and prepping only takes 10 minutes, but if you really want to save time, pick up a bag of cabbage slaw instead of chopping your own.

Alaska Salmon Risotto is a one dish entree that you can on your family’s table within a half hour….but it tastes like you cooked all evening! Asparagus, Salmon, Mushrooms and Risotto…a classic combination.
