Today marks the end of my Feast of the Seven Fishes dishes. Thus far, Baccala Salad , Seafood Marinara, Crab Pear Dip, Stuffed Lobster Tails and Fish Rolls have been my menu choices. As the big day knocks at our door and Christmas Eve is just a few hours away, two more fish dishes have anxiously awaited their reveal.

First, the Balsamic Sea Bass with Tomatoes and Onion has turned out to be my favorite of the seven.  Besides sea bass being one of my favorite fish, the combination of fish, roasted tomatoes and the caramelization of the balsamic vinegar created a carnival of flavors that made me smile. The glaze soaked into the bread and oh my, my, my. Am I allowed to marry a dish?

The Creamy Crab Pasta is a comfort food dish at its core. One of my favorite pastas has always been rigatoni, so an important element of this dish, for me, is the large, round tubes.  The pasta also proves itself as a superb creamy crab catcher, as it clings onto the sauce to ensure its consumption.

With Hanukkah in full swing, Christmas moments away, and Kwanzaa popping its head around the corner, what do you have planned?  Food? Drinks? Festivities?
