Yes, to fish, lamb and goat.

I've served them all, at 12th night, In Caid.

It all went over well.
(and they asked for MORE FISH).

So, just prepare it well, serve it attractively, it'll be FINE.  There will 
always be the odd one or two people who "won't eat anything with a face", 
but .. you get that in ANY crowd.
