A Pescatarian is a person that doesn’t eat poultry or red meat. They stick to seafood, vegetables, fruits, dairy, and eggs. So just because one won’t touch turkey or ham doesn’t mean they can’t have a good Pescatarian Thanksgiving Supper.
For years I have been throwing a combination Thanksgiving. One that is part Turkey lovers and part pescatarian. Most of the family eats meat, but my parents will only eat seafood. That means some of the sides are made with turkey/chicken stock and some are made with veggie stock.
But I must admit I love the fish with the seasonal flavors over the turkey. Especially after cooking all day. It is lighter yet it is filling. So, when I decided to do Thanksgiving meal menus, I knew I just had to do one for my Pescatarians!
This Pescatarian Thanksgiving Supper is a simple and delicious way to enjoy the flavors of the holiday without the traditional proteins. Make sure you snag the Grocery list at the bottom of the menu.
This Grocery List is a compiled list for every recipe in this dinner menu. Always review all the recipes represented on the menu. Double-check the grocery list to the recipes and your pantry and mark off anything you do have or anything for the recipes you decide not to make.
The Grocery List is set up in a few different ways.
First, it is set up for you to see what you can buy weeks ahead of time while the stores are nice and stocked. And the other things that you will have to buy closer to the day you are having your Thanksgiving dinner.
Second, it is set up to easily reference how much you will need to make the entire meal. The amount you will need for every item is listed. However, remember to review the recipes for any dislikes, allergies, and make sure the menu suits your needs. Then go through the fridge and the pantry and mark off anything you already have, and you won’t need it.
For this menu also do a count of how much fish you will need the recipe in this menu (as stated above) is just for 2 fillets. So take the number on the grocery list for
- panko breadcrumbs
- cranberry sauce
I did not include the spinach on the list because there are plenty of sides to go with this menu so if you want the spinach to serve it on top of then pick up some spinach!
And multiply it by how many people will be at your Pescatarian Thanksgiving Supper!
Some items you will have extra of like garlic, herbs, and some baking items. Unfortunately, you can’t go to the store and ask for only 1 tablespoon baking soda.
Plan out your Holiday Menu Timeline
Creating a plan to when things will be cooked, prepared, and even what dish you will serve each dish in will save you a countless amount of stress come the day of the big dinner.
Review your recipes and determine what you can prep ahead of time. Look in your fridge and map out how much space you will have to store all the prepped items.
Also review the recipes to see if you will need any extra kitchen equipment like a large roasting pan, crockpot or instant pot. If you do not have one of these items that may want to reach out to the blogger and ask if there is an alternative cooking method.
