Many families in our area observe a unique Christmas Eve tradition: preparing a pre-holiday mini-feast in which seven fish dishes are served in a sprawling all-evening affair.
Italian-American families have expanded the modest old-world menu of baccalà, or salted cod, to include rich delicacies like lobster and oysters.
Let's create a musical menu that sweeps the oceans for at least four of those seven fishes. Dig in to your song picks just after 9 a.m. this morning. Tartar sauce not included.
PJ Harvey: Down By The Water
B52's; Rock Lobster
Beatles: Octopus' Garden
Hank Williams: Jambalaya
