The lightness of fish and its saltwater companions will make for particularly seasonal fare this Lent as winter weather is all but gone (Did it ever really come?) and Easter falls well into spring.This year, Orthodox and Western Easter coincide on the same date, April 20 . Last year, the two celebrations were a full month apart and they won't fall on the same date again until 2017 . Aside from lentils, another staple during Lent, white fish is one of the least expensive proteins available, at as little as $3 per kilogram. During Lent, local recipes are often adjusted to substitute meat with white fish or veggies. The citrus part of this recipe is perfect for the beginning weeks of Lent, when locally grown grapefruits are still in season.
