Although I'm not Italian, I love everything that goes into the Feast of the 7 Fishes! It's an Italian-American celebration of Christmas Eve with dishes of fish and other seafood. I love seafood! I love pasta! For the past 3 Christmases my boyfriend and I have gotten conveyor belt sushi, so that's as close as I've gotten to eating fish on Christmas! Cheers everyone!
I immediately fell in love with ceviche when I traveled to Peru. Upon arriving back home, even I made the dish for my friends! They were skeptical when I served them raw fish in a bowl and they asked, "So... now we cook it?".
For this illustration, I combined a recipe illustration showcasing the freshness of the food, with a map of my journey from my sketchbook.
Global Cuisine, Feast of the Seven Fishes is an Italian-American tradition on Christmas Eve. A large meatless meal is common in Italy, but the Italian Americans gave it a theme of 7 Fishes. There are no rules on what dishes make up the seven, just lots of seafood!

Steamed Fish Cantonese Style (Mom’s Recipe)
1-2 lbs whole fish (fresh or flash-frozen)
2 stalks scallions (cut into 4-5 inches long)
2 stalks scallions (thinly sliced)
2 inches fresh ginger (peeled and sliced)
3 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1) Prepare the fish. Pat dry cleaned and descaled fish. Optional and not necessary: Season fish gills with white pepper and rub outside of fish with corn starch.
2) Line a heat proof plate with scallions that were cut into 4-5 inches long. Place fish over scallions. Place ginger over fish.
3) Prepare the steamer. Use a wok or a large pot with lid. Fill pot with 1 inch of water. Place a steaming rack inside pot. Bring water to a boil.
4) Carefully place plate with fish on steaming rack and cover pot with lid. Steam fish for 10 min or until cooked through. Cooking time will vary slightly based on size and thickness of fish. Fish is done when knife cuts through easily. Add additional cooking time at 2 minute increments if necessary. Do not overcook or fish will become chewy.
5) While fish is steaming, heat up soy sauce with sugar until soy sauce is warmed and sugar melted. Set aside. Heat up vegetable oil and set aside.
6) When fish is done steaming, remove plate from pot and drain any excess water from plate. Remove ginger. Place remaining thinly sliced scallions over fish. Drizzle warmed oil over fish. Drizzle warmed sweet soy sauce along sides of fish. Serve immediately.
I didn’t quite know what I was getting myself into the first time I happened upon a Chinese hotpot restaurant, but the deliciousness is something everyone should experience! Hotpot has everything you could ask for in a great meal - a shared dinner filled with a variety of fresh ingredients that you get to cook yourself right at the table in a simmering pot of perfectly seasoned broth while socializing with your friends and family. Yes, please!
The origin of the name Cullen Skink is a bit obscure except that Cullen is the name of a village on the north east coast of Scotland. Purists would say that you shouldn’t use just any smoked haddock, but rather “finan haddie”, which is haddock smoked over green wood and peat.
I have had a long fascination with slightly retro feel packaging, and used to buy tins just because I found the lettering or layout interesting. I like tinned fish packaging a lot more than using tinned fish in recipes I don't have that may recipes but might try to illustrate a nice fishcake recipe next
This is my late Mum's recipe for potted smoked trout, the recipe description is taken straight out of an old file that she kept her recipes in. I wanted to keep it as it originally was because the file is very precious to me.
Dad caught the trout as he loved to go fly fishing and I have very happy memories of watching him cast his rod while I lazed on the banks of the river watching and dreaming.
I was never very keen on trout, but the one way I liked it was when Dad hot smoked it, in a smoker he made himself out of an old cake tin. This was my favorite way to eat it when Mum made the pate, its delicious spread on crusty bread or toast.
Well, I thought I was done drawing panels for this challenge...until my husband went fishing with his friend. The fishing buddy caught a salmon and brought over some cut pieces of fish for my husband to smoke. I now attribute the inspiration for two panels to my husband. Thanks, Scott!
