During my childhood years, my family celebrated Lent season. It was like spring cleaning for the soul. Not only did my mom follow the traditional religious practices, she would also change our meals to honor the Lenten traditions. We abstained from certain activities as well meat and poultry twice each week. So during Lent season, we had at least two meatless meals each week.
I remember looking forward to these two meals because it meant we were having seafood. Since we lived in Puerto Rico during my childhood, it wasn’t unusual for my dad to go fishing. This came in handy during Lent season since my mom would have access to fresh seafood for her special meals.
Although I don’t follow the same traditions I grew up with, I do enjoy making family-friendly seafood recipes for my family. My family enjoys having seafood year-round, so I like to stock up on Alaska whitefish varieties which provide a delicious and easy way for my whole family to eat more seafood.
Why Alaska whitefish?
Alaska wild fisheries contribute nearly 60% of all seafood harvested in the United States. Its cold pristine waters produce the purest, high-quality seafood. The wild-caught Alaska whitefish varieties include; halibut, sablefish (black cod), sole, Alaska pollock, and cod. These varieties are sold fresh and frozen year-round for a wide-range of seafood possibilities and healthful options.
