Feast of the Seven Fishes by Jason Santa Maria
Last year, my Mom decided to be adventurous for our Christmas Eve meal and suggested trying the Feast of the Seven Fishes, a traditional Southern Italian Christmas eve dinner meant to represent the 7 Catholic sacraments. My Mom thought it would be an exciting challenge for us to try something different and a little more complex. Here was our menu:
- Bagnacauda a Garlic and Anchovy spread, served with Baguette
- Fried Calamari
- Baccala Vesuvio a soup made with salted cod and tomatoes.
- Salmon Scallop Terrine
- Poached Halibut served with a Champagne Butter sauce w Lemon Barley Pilaf
- Lobster Salad
- Crab w/ Angel Hair Pasta

I wish you all a wonderfully delicious Christmas!
