Share Article

Generations have grown up eating fried fish on Fridays, but now health and weight concerns are re-shaping the ways cooks (and their families) are approaching the bounty of the rivers and oceans.

"We understand cooks are on the lookout for healthy and different ways to celebrate the season without the usual deep-friend menu of fish and French fries," says Chef Joe Cottage of Mrs. Wages(TM) Test Kitchens.

Busy cooks looking for fresh Lenten seafood ideas will enjoy these healthy and authentic recipes instead of the usual fried fish fare.

“We understand cooks are on the lookout for healthy and different ways to celebrate the season without the usual deep-fried menu of fish and French fries,” says Chef Joe Cottage, Mrs. Wages(TM) Test Kitchens. “We’ll confess: the secret to their great taste is in the Mrs. Wages premixed and premeasured all natural Guacamole, Fruit & Cilantro, Jalapeno and Chipotle & Garlic seasoning mixes.

“Cooks consider these pre-mixed seasonings a blessing because they are not only easy but will spice up Lenten meals.”

The Scallop & Tomato Stew features a guacamole seasoning that gives the stew a cilantro and jalapeno flavor. “It blends well with the tomatoes and the softer sweetness of scallop,” adds Chef Cottage.

Swiss Chard Wrapped Salmon with Oranges and Chipotle Salsa features sweet and spicy salsa and complements the salmon perfectly, as well as poultry that can be served as an appetizer with pita chips. The smoky chipotle and heat level of Mrs. Wages Chipotle & Garlic Salsa seasoning is a unique flavor to contrast the oranges.

Shrimp Civeché Soft Tacos feature fresh citrus fruits including lime, orange and grapefruit along with Mrs. Wages Fruit and Cilantro salsa mix. Says Chef Cottage, “The acids from the citrus fruit ‘cooks’ the shrimp in a marinade overnight – firming its flesh and turning it opaque. The fruit and cilantro salsa mix complements the citrus flavor and shrimp – a great alternative to traditional shrimp dishes.”
