March Meal Plan: Fish Fridays Made Easy

Spring is right around the corner, seafoodies!

It’s March and hopefully, you are starting to see some happy little daffodils pop up! We are also in the season of “Lent” where many Americans practice the tradition of “Fish Fridays” leading up to Easter Sunday on April 12. That means you’ll find a lot more seafood specials in the grocery store this time of year – so take advantage and stock up on seafood!  Here at Dish on Fish, our March meal plan is alive with a tempting variety of nutritious and delicious seafood samplings perfectly suited for spring. We are craving “fresh” and have rounded up some Fish Friday Recipes you (and your family) are going to love.

So, let’s go grocery shopping because this is a great month to get to know your fishmonger. Every fish has a story and these seafood experts can give you a ton of tips. You can feel good that the seafood you find in U.S. grocery stores is sustainably sourced, but if you have any concerns check out Fish Watch – the nation’s database on sustainable seafood.  Your fishmonger can answer questions on everything from picking out seafood to “best cooked by” dates once you get it home. While you are at the store, pick up some ready to eat pouched and canned seafood, and hit the freezer aisle, as well. With seafood in the fridge, pantry, and freezer you’ll never run out of options! OK, ready for the March meal plan? There is a recipe for every Fish Friday this spring. From make-ahead breakfast recipes (we also love breakfast for dinner or “brinner”) to packable lunches, snacks and dinners, we hope you’ll try them all!

Breakfast

Shrimp & Broccoli Breakfast Frittata

The morning combination of protein sources such as eggs and shrimp will surely fuel you with more than enough energy to get you through the day. Bonus! It can be made the night before and you can hit snooze in the morning.

With its superb combination of herbs, spices, and other flavors, this Sage & Pecan Crusted White Fish recipe has a delicious texture from the crunchy coating to the flaky fish. We love using Wild Alaska Pollock, cod, grouper or haddock for this dish. Talk to your fishmonger to see what’s in the case. Bonus: The flaxseed gives an extra boost of Omega 3’s along with the fish.
