Enjoy These Delicious Shrimp Recipes During Lent



February 16, 2021

Individuals the world over will begin participating in Lent this week. But for those who are not familiar, what is Lent?

It is the 40-day period between Ash Wednesday (which this year is Wednesday, February 17, 2021)  and Easter (Sunday, April 4, 2021) that is observed by many Christians. During this time, individuals typically give up certain luxuries, most notably avoiding the consumption of red meat, pork and poultry either on Fridays or the entire 40-day timespan. This is done in preparation for Easter and in honor of Jesus Christ’s 40-day journey into the desert during which he fasted. This is known as a “Lenten sacrifice.”

While certain meats are typically denied during this time period, seafood is still on the table, and that includes the delicious taste of shrimp!  To do our part, we thought we would provide a few options for seafood meals to choose from over the next 40 days, so enjoy these wonderful recipes featuring wild-caught, American shrimp!
