I know, here it comes and YAY! I absolutely love Lent- Easter is my FAVORITE holiday. Yes, Christmas is a Holy Blessing, and I Love it, yet Easter is such an exclamation that our Lord loves us! I LOVE this time of year.
As for recipes-I am anxious to see any sweet recipes any of you have. We generally eat seafood on fridays....nothing really called a "Lenten favorite" Maine seems to have plenty of options in the seafood department I make a great baked stuffed haddock with maine crabmeat, and scallop casserole, and haddock florentine...how about that one?
this is not rocket science, I normally just eyeball things in the kitchen.
fresh haddock if possible, it's so yummy, but if not, frozen at sea is pretty darn yummy too.
thaw a package of frozen chopped spinach and drain it-really squeeze the fluids out.
add finely chopped red onion, hmmm about a half a medium red onion-more if you love onions like me
add a few cloves of garlic-pressed
add ricotta, about 4-5 oz
add 1/2 package of shredded mozzarella, or mozzarella/provalone mix
add1/4-1/2 cup of grated parm (just enough to keep spinach stuffing from being too watery-you should be able to make mounds without puddles)
mix this well, it should look 50%cheesy and 50% spinachy (hee hee)
about a handful of spinach mix in the bottom of foil lined 8x11 pan top each "mound" with a piece of haddock
place a nice slice of tomato on each "stuffed" fillet, than top them all with remainder of shredded cheese.
Bake them at 400 for about 20-25 min. yummy yummy
this is so yummy that the fasting part feels funny, so I tend to eat fruit, or something wicked small for lunch and skip breakfast all together....
