    All these sound so good-I love fish, I just suck at cooking it. Looks like it'll likely be salmon for us, since that's the overwhelming "can't fuck it up" suggestions.

    The asian recipes sound great, and will probably make their way into home experiments, but they won't go with the stuff being made otherwise. We do a really traditional Thanksgiving meal usually, so I'm hesitant to throw the asian ingredients into the mix.

    Thanks everyone!

    No shellfish for us, my husband has an extreme aversion to all shellfish so I can't cook it where he will be eating. WIsh we could, I love shrimp.

    Just make sure she eats butter, if you plan on using a recipe with it! Otherwise olive (or sesame?) oil will work (I think, maybe not, I hardly ever really cook).

    you can do a full fish just cut the head off. It helps keep the fish moist, especially if you're doing it in the oven. And of course for presentation.

    Salmon filets,soy sauce ,lemon,fresh ginger,garlic,sweet chili sauce,salt and pepper.some olive oil optional.Marinade the fish into the soy lemon grinded garlic and ginger and all the rest..Oh,grind some of the lemon peel too.Mix the marinade well.Bake until fish is done but take care the sauce wont dissolve into tarred mess.Add some water if you have to.Soy sauce is salty and i never use salt.You can make it as garlicky or sour or hot as you like.Sometimes i add some sugar into the mix.It tastes good and it is healthy.

    She definitely eats butter. I've cooked her a pasta dish in the past that had a decent amount of butter and she asked me for the recipe, so we are all good there.

    Just a warning, nothing ruins the beautiful aroma of a roasting turkey and stuffing than the smell of fish. How about a roasted veggie pasta salad? All your guests could enjoy that.

    That's the good thing about salmon, it's not that fishy smelling when you cook it. At least it's not to me. Not sure why.

    I love fishy fish, though. I love most seafood. I would chose seafood over most anything.

    If you do a good butter, garlic, lemon marinade that's what you'll smell instead. That's also why I like to add wine. Smells heavenly.

    And you can take slugs from the bottle while cooking.

    That's how my family always did holiday cooking. The women were nursing glasses of wine all day while they cooked, and then would grab beer when the inlaws came with the big cooler of craft beer a little later in the day. Now that we are adults, we drink most of the day as we cook, more as we eat, and then spend the night at our friend's place to sober up before we head back home.

    Are there actually people who cook on feast days without drinking? How?
