Pescatarian or Vegetarian Main for 8 people

pistachio peas | Jul 5, 201709:52 AM     37

I'm having a few close friends over as an early, casual birthday celebration for my husband. All are omnivores except one who is a pescatarian so I figure it's easier to cook an all vegetarian meal or a pescatarian meal.

I am looking for something that does not require making ahead and that won't break the bank. Happy to spend a little extra but not to the extent of scallops for 8, for example. I was thinking bouillabaisse but usually I make my fumet the day ahead and I don't have time for that this weekend.

Keeping it easy because my husband was recently hospitalized and we have both been under a lot of stress. Others are bringing appetizer, salad, and bread. I am making the main and a birthday cake.

No salmon, because husband is not a fan. I'd love any ideas!
