CHRISTMAS EVE

ImageCooking on Christmas Eve is exciting. Yes you read it right, exciting. It brings back so many wonderful memories. Italians and most Italian Americans celebrate the Feast of the seven fish. The following are some of the fish we consume. They are seasoned according to the region your family comes from, but they are all delicious.

Baccala(salt cod) with pasta, as a salad or fried, Cod fish balls in tomato sauce, Deep fried cod, Deep fired shrimp, Deep fried scallops, Insalata di mare (seafood salad), Linguine with anchovy, with crab, lobster or crab sauce. Marinated or fired eel. Scungilli salad, Stuffed calamari or fired Calamari. The fish can be any of your favorites. There is spaghetti, and vegetables and of course delicious crusty Italian bread. My favorite of course is the desserts. There is nothing like a home made Zeppola.

I hope you all enjoy your Christmas Eve, and get excited about cooking. What ever your tradition is make it special, the best thing you can put on the table is Love. Merry Christmas all.
