The inspiration behind this dish:
I grew up in a strict Catholic household where fish on Fridays was always the thing. Even though we don’t adhere to Lenten dinner practices now, I love the overall concept of it by skipping the meat. When you get down to it, it’s never a bad thing to eat less meat and eat more fish and veggies!
