Lent is coming..Low budget seafood specials?

Lent is here. Seafood seems to be in higher demand. I only get 6.50 for a lunch special. We have no deep fryer or charbroiler. They are geeting tired of tuna,egg & salmon salad. Any good ideas out there?

Well, you might be able to use my recipe for Poor Man's Lobster that I posted here a while back and make it into poor man's lobster rolls. I've never tried it but it may work.

My favorite Lenten Friday meal when I was a kid (I really didn't like any kind of fish or shellfish at all)(I do now!) was a sort of fish hash Mom would make. Think hash browns with a little fish chopped into the potatoes.

One thing that is gaining in popularity is fish tacos. But when you think of it, a fish burrito would do as well, or any kind of roll-up.

Fish and chips? maybe use a tempura(sp?) rather than beer batter to make it lighter? Or do a fish and chips salad, just put the fish and chips on a nice salad....you know...that way us guys can say "but honey, it's a salad"! (just saw a clip from metro diner on DDD)

Unfortunately I don't have a deep fryer.

I buy Krab (fake crab) when it is onsale at 2 for one. I love to make it into a Krab salad and serve it over a big bed of greens . Makes a lovely hearty salad. Or you can make a popovers and fill them with the Krab salad mixture.
