Lent recipe: Almond fish is an edible masterpiece

Almond fish recipeIsn't this one good lookin' meal? I mean, to me, it looks like art on a plate. I'm not much of an artist when it comes to painting or sculpting, but fortunately I up for making edible art. It's beautiful and delicious.

This delicious almond fish recipe can be made with cod or halibut--gotta love choices--and looks so lovely garnished with red roasted peppers. Make sure you have plenty of lemon wedges on hand because who doesn't love to squeeze lemon on their fish right before eating it? This is a great recipe for Lent or for those days that you want to do without meat.
