I always make a fish pie from scratch on Good Friday, with cod, salmon, smoked haddock and prawns. Not for any religious reasons, we just like it! :-)

We have had fish Good Friday as long as I can remember. Usually salmon or trout or something like that but this year it is a nice piece of good old fashioned cod, probably grilled and served with some little new potatoes and some creamy parsley sauce.

OH & I have this arguement every Good Friday. I´m not Catholic. He is!!
All my life my family has eaten fish on Good Friday & as a child, we had it most Fridays.
Just had Skate wing with new potatoes, peas & home made parsley sauce.....and he´s eaten every mouthful.
Stupid thing is, we eat fish most weeks because we both like it, so why the objection on Good Friday??

Well we don't deliberately have fish on Good friday or ordinary Friday. But we do eat fish a lot, in fact had salmon last night and today we had fish and chips in Cheltenham wetherspoons which was their special today, and it was really good for £5.99 each including a 175 glass of wine.

But I was aware I was doing something my mother would never have done - shop on Good Friday. :-(

we also have fish on good friday :-D


AnninGlos Report 29 Mar 2013 15:29

I should maybe know this but why do Catholics eat no meat on Fridays?


JustJohn Report 29 Mar 2013 15:38

I did find out this morning that today and tomorrow (Good Friday and the last day of Holy Week, Holy Saturday) are both religious fasting days. You can either have one large meal or two small meals apparently.

Not a bad idea when you think what we will all be eating on Sunday :-D

We had smoked haddock today , very nice it was as well and we try to have fresh fish at least once a week.

We don't, but we do it fish quite often and my nan had fish every Fri, don't know why. Every day of the week would be like that, as in Mondays...left over from Sun roast, Tues mince etc etc:)...atleast she knew what to buy in each week:)))

AnnG ....Wetherspoons f/chips are gorgeous:) ... but last week my sister and Vic found some of the chips hard, or not cooked and l found my narn bread too hard, it was the last one and had obviously been sitting around!!:(( so this week we have 3 free meals:)

That is good Jude, yes they are quite good with their complaints system aren't they? We have never had a problem with the Moon Under Water in Cheltenham. The Bank in Cheltenham and The regal in Gloucester can sometimes be a bit hit and miss. It all depends on the chef I suppose,

LOL...l know one of the chefs at ours,but he was having his break at the time.....LOL

We usually have fish on Fridays, no religious significance just a habit carried on since childhood, plus not even having to think about whats for dinner, If its Friday its fish :-)


FootieAngel Report 29 Mar 2013 18:13

Having fish on good friday to rebel. Our church taught and members practised that Jesus' final meal on earth was lamb as the festival he was celebrating has he sat down for his last meal was the passover of the lamb and also that Jesus was about to become the new lamb of God as the old ways were about to be done away with. so for 25 years we had lamb cooked with herbs - like I said I want fish today so am rebelling. The church no longer has any control over me x
