Anyone else cook the Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve?

Or nine fishes or 13 fishes, I know there are variations :-)

If so, whatcha cookin'?

My menu looks like this as of right now:

seafood salad (calamari and shrimp, this always goes over well)
baked clams
crab cakes
caponata
arancini
olives, two varities of cheese, and good bread

linguine and clam sauce (red clam sauce, but making a portion of white clam sauce for one person who can't eat tomatoes)
eggplant parm (my mom is famous for this)

steamed mussels
baked red snapper (prepared simply, with herbs, lemon and garlic)
seared scallops with a butter, wine and herb sauce (haven't decided which herbs yet)
some kind of side dish, possibly potato croquettes because everyone loves them, plus I can make them in advance and reheat while the snapper is cooking
a big salad, which my grandmother will make.

dessert I'm not worried about, someone is bringing pastries, someone else is bringing cookies, and someone else is making pie.

I love cooking Christmas eve meals and keeping the tradition alive!
