FisherFarms Shares ISDAmazing Seafood Recipes to Try This Lenten Season

Holy Week is a special time. To make it even more special, why not try these seafood recipes and make this Lenten season an even more memorable one?

Observing meat-less Fridays during the Lenten season can be more enjoyable than serving the usual traditional Filipino food thanks to fresh twists in cooking seafood shared by FisherFarms.

Relleno Dynamite
Take the all-time favorite “dynamite” or stuffed chili peppers, for example. The dish usually contains chili pepper, cheese, and sometimes ground beef or pork, which are then wrapped with spring roll or lumpia wrappers. For Lent, we can recreate this by substituting meat with delicious “rellenong bangus” (stuffed milkfish)!

To make this tasty, unique dish, you’ll need the Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus of FisherFarms.
