Its Good Friday here... [Apr. 6th, 2007|02:07 pm]
Orthodox Food - recipes of faith traditions


... So I thought I'd post my normal Good Friday meal.

1 large tin of red salmon, 2 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon flour, 2 cups hot milk (if you use hot milk, you can add it al at once, instead of slowly. When I heat my milk, I also throw in 2 or 3 cloves, and a bay leaf or two), mashed potatoes, peas.
Melt the butter, stir in the flour, add the milk (if you flavour it, drain the stuff out). Stir until thick. Add the drained salmon.
Serve it with mashed potatoes and the peas.

Its probably not technically allowable for Christians that follow Lent in the correct and true forms, but its enough of a fish meal for most of us reformist Christians, and Protestants.

Sounds good, although, as you mentioned, most of us can't eat it :) We haven't eaten dairy at all during Lent, and fish only once, and we don't eat anything at all on Good Friday.

One of my friends asked if I too fast on Good Friday... I'm guessing you guys do? Is this a particularly Roman Catholic thing?

I am Eastern Orthodox. We keep a pretty different fast than the Catholics through Lent, but I'm sure some Catholics fast of Good Friday (which we call Great and Holy Friday). During Lent we don't eat meat, dairy, fish, wine or oil, although the oil one is often not followed.
