Frutti di Mare

Frutti di Mare

Frutti di Mare is a traditional Christmas Eve dish, but is tasty year round. 

It’s often made with shrimp, scallops, calamari and octopus. Although I like octopus, I tend to leave it out, because my family doesn’t enjoy it.

I order the seafood from the fish monger ahead of time.  I ask them to peel and clean the shrimp, to save myself the time and effort.

This should be made a day (or two) before it is served to allow the marinade to fully flavor the fish. 

Since I make this dish on Christmas Eve for a big crowd, the recipe makes a lot.  Feel free to halve or quarter the recipe.
