    This one is for all the Italians out there. I do a recipe for a seafood bisque that has seven types of seafood in it. Would that qualify as the seven fishes for Christmas Eve, or does it have to be seven seperate dishes?

    We make a zuppa di pesce.. 7 is 7 whether it's one dish or seven.

    Go with my blessing as one Italian to another... buon appetito! Buon natale!

    Thanks. I don't know that I'm of Italian decent (Officialy German, Scott, and Irish), but with my love of traditional Italian cuisine, I strongly suspect I have an unknown ancestor that snuck North across the border to cross pollinate. ;)

    If you're concerned with the tradition, then the soup would only qualify as one dish.

    But ain't no 7-fishes police out there that I ever heard of.
