Tradition says that fish, rather than meat, is the meal of choice on Good Friday. 

Christians have abstained from eating meat on Good Friday for centuries and many people, religious or not, choose to eat fish on the Friday before Easter Sunday. 

Although it's a centuries-old concept, it needn't be a tired tradition. We have 5 delicious recipes to share, showcasing simple and delicious ways to serve a splendid fish supper to your loved ones this Easter weekend.
