We have done fish for Christmas as far back as anyone can remember, never even thought about it being a Catholic thing. We are Austrian and German decent, so it makes sense. Also catholic.Polish-Catholic here, so Christmas eve is a “no meat” day. Several fish dishes are always on the menu though. For example:
Ryba w galarecie – fish in gelatin. It’s a white fish in stock that’s served cold, and hence gelatinized
Ryba po grecku – Greek style fish (Why a Greek food item is a traditional Polish Christmas dish...no idea). It’s fish fillets buried in grated carrots, parsley, onion and tomato paste
HOLY! Going tonight! Dad swears by that place.
