Lent is over soon
Lent is about over. There are so many litle church fried fish dinners and groups that do Lenten fried fish specials here in our small very Catholic city. It has cost us a little business. At the restaurant I always do one or two really nice fish specials for the weekend, regardless of Lent. Tilapia, snapper, and salmon are on the menu at all times. The past couple of weeks I did some variations on sole. I stuffed it with crab meat to create a round presentation and carved vegetables to go around it and sauced it with a fish veloute. One Friday I added green grapes and toasted almonds. We sold out of them both weekends.
