Meatless Fridays

During my childhood, since I was raised Catholic, we always had a meatless dinner on Friday nights. The Lenten season, spanning six week from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday banned any form of meat from our table on Fridays only. I recall those countless tuna noodles casseroles, fish sticks and mac and cheese, salmon patties and tater tots….is you mouth watering yet?……served up by my mom.  Oh, and that was the night we had two vegetables.  A kids dream meal, right?

Fast forward several years, (ahem!).  I do not observe that rule any longer, but I do enjoy seafood over red meat these days.

I’m including this recipe for my friend Denise, though she says she doesn’t read blogs, will have to read today’s post.

My mother used this while she was on WeightWatchers many years ago, don’t know why she never served it to us!!

You can use any white flesh, mild fish…flounder, talapia or my choice, orange roughy,

Place four pieces in a prepared baking dish.  Pour 1/2 cup orange juice over the fish.  Season with salt, pepper, minced fresh garlic. 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley.  Dot with butter or margerine.  Top with Seasoned bread crumbs.  Bake in 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes, or till fish flakes easily.  Do not serve with tater tots!!   Enjoy!
