Our favorite Italian seafood recipes for any occasion.

In the 46 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter, many Catholic Italians give up meat for the Lenten season. Customs vary from region to region in Italy and people choose to refrain from different things, but it's common to abstain from meat in favor of another favorite protein: seafood.

Whether or not you observe lent, you'll love these classically Italian seafood recipes.
