Every Christmas, instead of having a traditional ham or turkey and sides, my family does "SEAFOOD FEST"!! It's like a Festivus of Food. We don't really have any traditional side dishes... maybe some rice or rolls or something green. Everything else is seafood: crabcakes, baked scallops, stuffed clams, steamed lobster, swordfish, sea bass, shrimp etoufee, you name it, we cook it. We've done this for the last ten years.
This year, all I've got for the menu is clam chowder and bacon-wrapped scallops. I need some ideas for this year's Seafood Fest, so where else to find them but the Chowhound board??
So what's your favorite seafood dish? It can be anything from a side dish to a main course; it can be buttered, battered, broiled, or fried; steamed, creamed, or raw and cleaned. As always, thanks for the input!
