At Dish on Fish, we love celebrating the cultural traditions of the holidays. One of these traditions is “La Festa dei Sette Pescithe,” perhaps better known as the “Feast of the Seven Fishes.” It’s Seafood Sunday and we’re highlighting seven delicious Feast of the Seven Fishes recipes!
The Feast of the Seven Fishes is celebrated by many Italian-Americans on Christmas Eve with dishes of fish and other seafood. Typically, friends and family gather to enjoy a table of seven seafood dishes—each with a unique type of seafood.
A feast of this size calls for lots of tasty options. Our approach is to set the scene with some amazing seafood appetizers – crab puffs and shrimp ciabatta. Next, serve the Clam Chowder and the Holiday Seafood Salad. Then tuck into a family-style feast of Mussels with White Wine Sauce, Grilled Parmesean Wild Alaska Pollock, and sumptuous Lobster Pasta, followed by salads and Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta!
Each of these seafood recipes is equal parts healthy and delicious, and also packed with protein and vital nutrients, like potassium, vitamin D, vitamin B, iron, selenium and more!
This Christmas Eve, celebrate with friends and family and our easy Feast of the Seven Fishes menu. We promise the dishes will earn rave reviews from everyone around the dinner table.
