Potato Pairings With Fish For Lent

Q:

Do you have any suggestions for pairing fish with potatoes for Lent?

A:

That’s a very good question. Since I am not Catholic and familiar with all the practices involved, please bear with me as I go over our list of recipes for some possibilities that you could consider or modify slightly to conform to the guidelines. The main link too many of our recipes with fish and Idaho® Potatoes as a “Perfect Pairing” can be found at Perfect Idaho® Potato Pairing… Fish.

Here are a couple of favorites:
