Fish Fry Fridays & Meatless Meals For Lent

Meatless Meals Fish Fry Fridays Lent Featured Photo

Today is Ash Wednesday (2/17/21)…the beginning of Lent for many!


If you’re tired of the same old blah that you usually cook up on Fridays in Lent (like me), I put together a list of dishes I have seen floating around the interwebs. I have not personally tried each item, but it’s on my list of places to try!


Let me know if you go and what you think.


St. Isidore’s (Macomb)

Fish Fry Fridays Drive Thru!

Blake’s Tasting Room (Armada)

Donut Stout Battered served with Apple Slaw? I’m there!


Regale (Macomb)

Their menu is overflowing with options!

Seared Diver Scallops, Salmon Tikka, Fennel Crusted Tuna, Nova Scotia Chowder…just to name a few.

This is kinda like a tapas place, so the idea is to order and share a couple of different dishes!

The Shrimp Tacos Are Delicious!
