Creamy Parmesan Salmon

Do you know why Catholics eat fish on Friday during Lent? I grew up in the Catholic church and attended Catholic school until I was in 6th grade. My parents did not like fish when I was younger so we just abstained from eating meat. This is actually the “rule”. You are not supposed to eat warm-blooded flesh meat as a small sacrifice for the immeasurable sacrifice Jesus made for us. Since fish are not warm-blooded it is an acceptable meal on Fridays. Did you know that this practice actually led to the creation of McDonald’s fish filet sandwich? A drop in the sale of hamburgers on Fridays inspired the company to offer this fish sandwich! I don’t really like fish sandwiches but I do like salmon. And these Creamy Parmesan Salmon Fillets are one of my family’s favorites! Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
