Where are you located, Simon? How about a blackend catfish, grouper, shrimp? Turn it into a wrap w/slaw.

Fish and "chips" by pan fry'n the fish and make'n a potato pancake. Or slice the potatoes thin and pan fry. Or a big thick cut fish with mash and mushroom gravy.

Seafood gumbo, boiled octopus, calamari in a fry pan w/lettuce.

Sorry, just try'n to throw out ideas in hopes to spark somebody that knows a heck of alot more than me.

Look at my fish recipe, maybe you'll like it. No need to spend a lot of money any fish, or fish filet would work.
Fish in carrot sauce.

Salmom loaf. I can get you the recipe if you like.
Broiled fish with Bruccetta topping. You can use pretty much any type for this.
Stuffed squid. Goes well with a salad and piece of garlic bread.
Poached fish fillet with a shrimp in the middle. Roll the filiet around a small shrimp or two, fasten with a toothpick, and poach in a bit of broth. Only takes a few minutes. You can do a few up ahead and bring back to warm in the microwave for 30 seconds. Serve with salad, or rice.

Fake crab and shrimp in a beshamel over rice is great too.

Shrimp and grits also! Just made that a few nights ago.

Some of you folks are lucky to be getting your shrimp low budget. They have been priced pretty high by me lately, $15 something/lb on sale. Maybe my stores haven't started their lenten specials yet... I'm hoping.

I have never heard of fake shrimp before but I googled it and got this:
How to Use Imitation Crab Meat to Make Fake Fried Shrimp | eHow.com

I'm going to try it just for the heck of it.

Wow! What size, U-10 or 12? I just bought some WC Florida pink shrimp, 30 to 41 count for $7.00 a pound.
