One of my favorite things about Lent is “no meat Fridays” (lol). Don’t get me wrong, I am very much a die hard meat eater! I am that person that is more likely to order a nice NY strip than chicken any day! Side-note: must dedicate a post (or a few) to steaks everywhere! Getting back to lent now…so every year during the Lent season I have made it a point to spend every Friday with my parents, it has turned into sort of a tradition I guess. My mother and I definitly enjoy some good seafood and my dad not so much but interestingly enough, he actually is the one to cook for us every friday during the lent season and boy do I look forward to fridays during lent! This is one of my favorite dishes by my very own dad! The dish is filled with seared scallops, mussels, cockles & sometimes even some little neck clams and shrimp for added yum. He adds sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, crushed tomato, garlic, lemon and some delicious white wine. Lets not forget some freshly sliced baguette brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt & toasted for that perfect crunch and for dipping into the delicious broth of course!
Ideas for Lent? 😉
