Clams Oreganata – Feast of the Seven Fishes

“Feast of the Seven Fishes” is a time honored Christmas Eve tradition. The traditional abstinence from meat for Roman Catholics has lead to the time honored celebration of a feast of fish. This tradition is still very strong in countries like Italy where the feast is called “La Viglia”, the Vigil.
The custom was brought to the United States by Southern Italian immigrants in the late 1800’s early 1900’s and is still practiced in many Italian-American homes on Christmas Eve today.
