Christmas eve all seafood dinner favorites?
just curious about everyone's favorite choices for christmas eve. i know the amounts differ from 7 to 10. we did 10 a few years ago which was working well until the calamari hit the floor. OOPS!
salmon different ways
and others i can't recall right now. what are your favorites?
I might just make this on the 24th. I usually make scallops with butter,olive oil and lemon juice, and some seasonings, and serve over mesclun. This sounds like a nice change, and I have Calvados on hand. The scallops are so delicious this time of year, I've been eating them raw!
Another thing but I don't make every year, is whole calamari, stuffed with scallops, lobster and shrimp and cooked for 20 minutes in red sauce. It's a meal in itself.
We are HUGE Christmas seafood eaters... there's always some steamed crab to be found, usually (since it's winter) in the form of king crab, and definitely mussels, but usually done with white wine & herbs. Mmmm. I love it!
