LENT: Fry-less Fish recipes for Lent from the International Olive Council

Mahalo International Olive Council (IOC) for offering to share the following delicious recipes!

Fry-less Fish Recipes for Lent

Lent is long. For those who keep to a Lenten schedule, at this point in the

ritual they’ve had about as many fish fries as they can muster. Childhood

memories of the Friday Fish Fry are replaced with visions of something light and fresh.

Luckily, the International Olive Council (IOC) has three scrumptious

alternatives that offer flavor, freshness and an epicurean touch. These

recipes feature olives and olives oil for a healthier twist on this Friday’s

fish. Olive oil offers a naturally healthful way to incorporate fats into

the diet—replacing olive oil in recipes for deep fried foods or foods

sautéed in butter is an easy way to reduce the level of LDL or “bad”

cholesterol while increasing the “good” HDL cholesterol in the diet.

Cod and Kale Skillet

Infused with the Mediterranean flavors of olives, tomatoes and wilted kale.

Pair with a side of lentils for a hearty yet wholesome dinner.

Pan Seared Fillets with Wilted Greens

The “I-must-have-my-fish-fry” crowd will love this dish. Quick and easy

fillets pan-fried in heart-healthy olive oil are accompanied by a salad of

late-winter’s best leafy vegetables and two-types of olives.

Fresh Salmon Salad

A healthful combination of quinoa and salmon, perked up with and olives for a salad that can also be eaten as a main course.
