For many, the Lenten season can seem a daunting task. Meatless meals mean you forego the option of pulling together a quick sandwich for lunch or racing through the drive thru to pick up burgers for dinner on those hectic days. Trust me we've all been there.
A note on the salsa: the fish can have a bit of a kick, so the sweet salsa (made with fresh mangos, kiwi and grapefruit) balances out the heat. Feel free to swap out oranges for grapefruit or papaya for mango, both work well.
