Lenten Seafood on Friday Fri, 03/24/06 3:04 PM (permalink)
Ok, so what are all my fellow good Catholics eating on Fridays during Lent? For me, its been a good reason to steam some king crab and broil scallops. Tonight, I think I'll live up to my screen name and get some fried clams.

There's a pretty good roadfood joint in Seymour, CT called Fisherman's Galley. It's mostly take-out, maybe three small tables. Fairly good clams, excellent lobster bisque and fried scallops.

          I usually keep rolls of various butter in the freezer and using one of my favorites tonight - baked flounder with orange-chive butter. We eat a lot of fish and seafood throughout the year so lent isn't any hardship.

            I like lent because it forces me to eat more fish, I also get tired of the same old same old so I do tend to try exotic? type fish that I wouldn't have tryed during the rest of the year. Chow Jim

              Ummmmm I had raw oysters and fried oysters at Jim's Seafood in Frankfort, KY. They were very good and I hope they were acceptable for Lent. Moi is a Christian thing but don't always comply with the dietary things.

                I hope shrimp scampi works for Lent. A friend of mine sent me some pink shrimp which were 25 to the pound. I got several pounds that were hard frozen.

                Lleechef sent me her method which was basically butter and garlic. I did add some Old Bay seafood seasoning to it.

                I did the shrimp about two minutes on each side and used the residual butter/garlic/old bay seasoning over some beatuiful butter biscuits.
