The Feast of the Seven Fishes

The Feast of the Seven Fishes, or festa dei sette pesci, is an Italian-American celebration during Christmas Eve with dishes of fish and other seafood

My husband and I both grew up in Italian-American households and although we lived almost 2 hours apart in New York, we both celebrated Christmas Eve in similar ways

My Dad would always bring home cod fillets and lobster tails and my husband’s family enjoyed fried shrimp and calamari

We’ve chosen seven of our most popular fish and seafood recipes to share for this Christmas eve celebration

Clams Oreganata

Succulent clams topped with  crisp golden brown breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese and herbs
