It is a Southern Italian tradition to have a feast of seven fishes on Christmas Eve. The origin of the tradition is debated, but most likely the seven fishes represent the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church.

My family greatly looks forward to our fish feast and I wanted to share with you seven terrific fish recipes that you might like to share with your family too.
