When you envision your holiday spread
, seafood might not be the first thing that comes to mind—unless, of course, you’re Italian. Then, it's hello Feast of the Seven Fishes—as it should be.

Whether you’re welcoming a number of pescatarian guests, looking for some lighter fare, or just want to try out a new recipe, these under the sea delights deserve a spot on your holiday menu.Oyster Stew Chili
