Feasts of the Seven Fishes

Seven Fishes Feasts

Feast of the Seven Fishes is the traditional Christmas Eve meal for Americans of Italian descent -- and something truly special for seafood-lovers to experience during the season.  It originated in Southern Italy and is also known as The Vigil (La Vigilia). It typically includes anywhere from seven to as many as thirteen different seafood dishes.
