Steam Fish In Your Thermo Mixer
This Friday is a public holiday here in Australia, as we celebrate Catholic Easter.
It is an Aussie tradition to eat fish on Good Friday and we usually find ourselves with family and friends eating and drinking around the table or at the beach or the local park.
For us Greeks, this weekend will be a lovely break away from work, but it is not our Easter. We don’t actually celebrate Orthodox Easter until later in the year.
Having said that, it is still a tradition for Greek people to eat fish this Friday.March 25th is the Annunciation of the Theotokos. This is an Orthodox religious celebration and a special day during the fasting period when eating fish is allowed.
Will you be eating fish this Friday?
We have a great recipe for you to try…
