Feast of the Seven Fishes
However, way back in the day it was an abstinence of meat and milk products which included a 24 hour fast prior to the feast. This was to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ.
This is a tradition we continue to improve upon.
How to Make Feast of the Seven Fishes
- I like to buy this tray of fried fish for Christmas Eve at our favorite local Italian restaurant called Vernon's Cafe. Since I'm a "Northern" girl I don't fry too many foods which makes this very convenient. It has smelt, cod, scallops, shrimp and calamari.
---One of the most famous fried fishes is baccala; a salted cod fish but some don't like it and therefore opt for another choice of fish.
