Foodie Friday: Go Fish! 15 Stylish Seafood Recipes

Today is the first Friday of Lent, of interest to many of you who grew up Catholic. Besides the day to day rigors and wrath of the nuns, after 12 years of Parochial School, we also had to refrain from eating meat on Fridays during Lent. For many that meant, soggy frozen fish sticks.  For me it meant the beginning of a lifetime love of seafood!  God bless my parents for introducing me to seafood early - lobster, oysters, lake perch, smelt, I ate it all. And so did my daughter, whose fave food at the age of 4 was "thresher shark." If you aren't a fish lover yet, take a look at these recipes.  I think they may just convert you to my part of the world!

Here: 15 Seafood Recipes That Will Get You Through The Next 40 days and 40 nights.

Seared Sea Scallops with Gingered Pea Purée and Cilantro Gremolata
What an exciting looking dish! Made with fresh pea puree, it is a perfect choice for Spring.

Grilled Shrimp with Cilantro, Lime, and Peanuts
In my view, grilling is the best way to prepare shrimp.  Add some citrus and you could be done, but Martha takes shrimp to another level.
