With these tasty Lenten-inspired recipes, you’ll never worry about Tuna Casserole again.Traditional English fish and chips with lemon garnish and tartar sauce

Pro Tip: Store leftover Cajun seasoning for up to six months.

Beer Battered Fish
Bring Friday Fish Fry to your kitchen! Our Beer Batter recipe turns flaky cod into crispy, golden bites. Pair with French Fries and satisfy your Fish Fry cravings.

Pro Tip: Swap linguine for rotini noodles and serve chilled for a meatless summer dish.

Make the recipes above with Sea Queen Jumbo Easy Peel Raw Shrimp and Sea Queen Flounder Fillets and feel good about where you get your seafood.

    One of the things I’ve missed for 20 years has been shopping at “my” ALDI. Now I have one in my neighborhood and I’m so happy. When I walk into the store it’s a total feeling of home. Wish there were more items from Germany but realize that is probably not going to happen.
    Thank you for a job well done!

      I wish the US Aldi stores had more products from Germany that they carry year round and carried a wider variety of German products too!

    One meal we have during lent is stuffed acorn squash or spaghetti squash from Aldi, split or cut lengthwise , then scoop out seeds and face squash upside down on dinner plate and cover with Saran Wrap for 12-15 min. Or until soft to the touch. Meanwhile thinly slice garlic, carrot, celery, onion, mushrooms, and cook till soft about 5 min. Then add some spaghetti sauce over the vegs and mix together in large frypan.Sautefor 5 min. Then put into the scooped out part of the squash. Then top with shredded cheese to your liking, I prefer cheddar, you may like mozzarella. Put back into micro for 1 1/2 min to melt. Have a small salad with this and you’ll enjoy all of Aldi produce cooked together for a Lenten meatless meal.
