Lent Dishes

During this Lental season, many people have given up meat as part of their faith. A traditional meal during this time is fish and chips; I decided to step outside of the box and check out other options for people to try.

First stop, Taco Fresco. They offer a lot of meatless dishes but the most popular right now is their fish tacos.

“These are very popular because those are really simple and flavorful and that’s the secret, its very simple. The tilapia we grill and we add seasoning of the taco fresco and we add onions and cilantro only, and you can add your choice of salsas,” said Joaquin Riveramelo, Manager at Taco Fresco.

But if you’re looking for something a little bit more filling, you can make your way to Potter’s where they’re serving up a shrimp fajita plate.

“It comes with a side of tortillas, either flour or soft corn tortillas, we have grilled shrimp with seasoning with bell peppers, tomatoes, guacamole, sour cream, onions sautéed, black beans and rice,” said Matthew Galanes, Assistant General Manager at Potter’s.

And Q-BBQ has the closest thing to the traditional fish and chips, but this dish is served with a twist.

“We role this out only once a year and it’s our beer battered cod and we have our homemade tartar sauce on it. We put it on top of a brioche bun and then we serve it with one of your favorite Q-BBQ sides,” said Michael LaPidus, Owner of Q-BBQ.

Aside from being a good tasting meal, fish is very nutritious being high in protein and low on fat.
