Crispy Baked Fish Nuggets

With Lent in full swing, fish has been flying swimming off the shelf!
I always try to have at least one fish and/or meatless meal per week year round, but during Lent, we make sure our meatless meal is on Friday.

I am not Catholic (I’m a born and bred Lutheran!), but my husband was raised Catholic, so we choose to honor his traditions and eat meatless on Fridays. It is my understanding that the reasoning behind meatless Fridays is a way to sacrifice in remembrance of all Jesus gave.

I’m thinking we will have to find a different way to sacrifice as this recipe is something we actually look forward to.

Hmmm… Maybe my sacrifice can be cleaning the bathrooms every Friday. Now there’s a sacrifice!
