If it’s Friday, it must be fish. At least that’s the way it is in our Catholic house most Fridays. Not all Fridays, but most Fridays. As a kid, I hated Fridays. What, fish sticks again! As a young adult, it meant egg salad or tuna salad sandwiches. Okay, are you depressed yet? It gets better.
Here it is, another Catholic Friday. Fridays are great, the start of the weekend. While I don’t need to stress over work any more, I still look forward to the weekends. Everything slows down, even when we have a hundred things to do. Somehow on the weekends, we manage to remember the little things like holding hands and lingering over a nice meal.
Before I share with you today’s Fish Fry, I need to go off on a rant for a moment. I wanted to do a little research into the types of fish Jesus might have eaten. He was Jewish, so the fish was scaled and not skinned, as in no catfish. Tilapia was and still is very common throughout the world. Personally, I like it for its mild flavor and flaky fry. Anyway, as I was floating around the internet I came upon a question posted way back when. It was a woman looking to bake bread for her mother’s church communion. And so begins my rant.
Have I mentioned that I simply adore Piccata dishes? There’s something extraordinary about the way the buttery, lemony wine and capers sauce dances on my tongue that is out of this world!
