It's the Lenten season and time to have a few meatless dishes; Here's a good one.

I never quite understood how seafood could be considered vegetables. :)
He’s kidding about the popcorn turkey, right?
Properly pan frying scallops is an art form. Trying to put up a ‘recipe’ for people to follow for such a thing is probably going to result in a folks trying it, failing, and then blaming you for it.
Yum! I look forward to fish fries and pasta dinners this Lenten season.
Sooner or later the Church will have to change lenten fast ruling. Meat has become cheaper than fish. Fish has become a luxury item.
To think our Lord thinks you are honoring him by phony “fasting” is unbelievable.....
Then immediately turn heat down by half to medium.
The lemon (real - not the reconstituted stuff) goes on right before it is done cooking...does not take long.
I would add that dusting the scallops with a hint of flour helps protect them...and thickens the lemon sauce a bit.
Jesus would probably say: “You know, we would rather you helped people than shun a few meat calories. This fasting stuff really means nothing to my Father you know.”
I'm Protestant :>)
You may not know about the traditions of the Christian Faith...
Fasting in the New Testament was introduced by our Lord Jesus Christ Who gave us a great example of fasting.
We’re having our once a year during Lent Long John Silver’s meal. I can only handle the grease once a year. I can’t wait! :0) Other than that, we never eat meat on Friday. I like to serve meatless soups and pastas. Keeps my grocery bill down a bit, too, by not serving meat with every meal. It’s truly not that big of a deal.
“Fish has become a luxury item.”
Cod seems to be especially pricey these days. Dunno if its overfishing, or just popularity. I do know a number of local churches and other groups that hold fish fries are switching to haddock now because of the price of Atlantic cod.
The Father doesn't need our fasting, macquire, we do. The Church has never taught that fasting is for God's sake.
I was taught to keep spooning the hot fat over the top of the scallops. The flour would probably be a good idea, but just making sure they’re perfectly dry would go a long way in the same direction. The recipe doesn’t include any of that stuff, which is a recipe for disaster IMHO.
How true. I know a lot of people who 'give up chocolate.' How insulting to the Lord.
"11To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats." Isaiah 1:11
“Cod seems to be especially pricey these days.”
Thanks for a wonderful flashback! When I lived in South Portland, Maine big cuts of cod in the supermarket one or two hours from the boat was priced only slightly more than potatoes. It was heaven for a guy that was working out regularly.

Other than the sea scallops, the liver/turkey/beef chili is off the menu for Fridays. We have tuna casserole, cheese pizza, french toast/pancakes or cheese pizza. Works for us and I enjoy it.
