Hot Seafood Appetizers
Seafood dinners are typically very popular to serve around Christmas and New Year’s. Dishes like lobster, crab, and shrimp tend to elevate the atmosphere of a dinner party or automatically categorize a meal as “gourmet” or “fancy.” Perhaps this is the reason many hosts and hostesses like to add seafood courses to their holiday menus.
Others see the holiday season as an extra-special occasion, worth splurging on with premium ingredients not otherwise typical of an “everyday” dinner. This is an opportunity to spoil one’s family with an extra gift of delicious flavors.

And still for other families, it’s about tradition. This may be in a “my family’s always done it this way!” sense or one in line with specific religious or cultural customs. For example, many Italian-Americans have a customary “Feast of the Seven Fishes” on Christmas Eve which, as the name suggests, typically consists of seven (or more) types of seafood dishes. This tradition is similar to the Roman-Catholic custom of abstaining from meat before a major holiday or celebration.
