If you partake in no meat on Friday's during the Christian holiday of Lent, these 40 Seafood Recipes will help give you a little menu planning inspiration.

I personally don’t like or eat any seafood, so you will rarely find seafood dishes here at Carrie’s Experimental Kitchen. But just because I don’t cook it often myself, doesn’t mean I don’t know a fabulous looking dish when I see it. Being that it’s Lent; where Christians don’t eat meat on Friday’s in the weeks before Easter; I’ve compiled this list of 40 Seafood Recipes for Lent to give you a little inspiration.

Click on the name of the recipe to be taken to the author’s original post.  You can also find all of today’s recipes on my Seafood Pinterest Board along with other seafood finds. Check back often as I post to this board weekly. Have a great weekend!

    Actually it isn’t a Christian tradition, it’s a Catholic tradition. But thank you for this lovely list!

      You’re very welcome; however, the traditional purpose of Lent, per my understanding, is the preparation of the believer through prayer, penance, repentance of sins, almsgiving, atonement and self-denial. This event, along with its customs, is observed by Christians in the Anglican, Calvinist, Lutheran, Methodist, Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox traditions. I also happen to be a practicing Catholic.
