Your Christmas Eve meal should be festive, but not so labor-intensive you spend all your time in the kitchen instead of visiting with family and friends. This simple but indulgent mixed shellfish dish from Michelle Bernstein of Michy’s, in Miami, is great on its own with a crusty bread to sop up the sauce, or as part of an authentic Italian holiday feast.
Distribute the broth, vegetables, and seafood among 4 wide, deep bowls. Garnish with parsley.
For an authentic Italian Feast of the Seven Fishes, start with two fried seafood hors d’oeuvres: salt-cod fritters and calamari rings before the mixed shellfish dish. Then for the main course, serve red snapper in a spicy puttanesca sauce paired with sautéed broccoli raab and a simple spaghetti with pecorino and garlic. A rich cannoli-inspired cheesecake, flecked with orange zest and chocolate chips, finishes the meal.
