Fishy Feast

The Feast of Seven Fishes is finished. We started at 3 PM and finished around 8 PM. It was a fun day preparing all the various dishes. But we came up short, we just couldn't make it to the seventh dish, which technically would have been the 8th fish (seafood). Can you say "stuffed". So, here is a brief recap, with photographs of each dish (not all of good quality).
1. Tomato crostini with anchovies:










2. Tuna Crudo - raw ahi tuna served on a pool of lemon juice, topped with olive oil and course sea salt, and baby gherkins on the side.














3. Smoke Salmon PIzza - with creme fraiche and caviar. 
Counting this as 2 "fish", salmon and caviar.



4. Broiled Lobster Tail with panzanella















5. Mussels in white wine and shallots














6. Seared Sea Scallops with Champaign Beurre Blanc and green beans








I am full !

That's all I'm Saying

What no dessert? Something with ricotta maybe? I couldn't do the mussels, but everything else looked wonderful.
Have a great trip-hi to our friends the Harris's whom we miss very much. Have a Happy New Year and many laughs in 2010! Love Georgiann
