Christmas Eve Dinner

We always have seafood for dinner on Christmas Eve and this year I decided to shake things up a bit.

We started with fried calamari:

... which were coated in flour seasoned with dried parsley, salt and pepper and then fried in vegetable oil. I also made a spicy marinara for dipping.

SP has been itching to grill, so for dinner we had grilled shrimp over couscous and a salad:

I marinated the shrimp in olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes and then skewered them for easy grilling. We have a charcoal grill and the smokey flavor was really great with the shrimp.

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!!
Pin It!
