Dinner Club - Citrus Appetizer Ideas
- TSAW Mar 5, 2013 09:00 PM
My dinner club is meeting up again. I always like to run the theme past other Chowhounders for their great ideas and tips. This time around the theme is "Citrus", I'm on appetizers. So that is finger foods only (no salads or veggie type dishes - another couple does that). This group tends to favour meat but that's not a requirement.
In snowy Canada I can't go and pick any wonderful fresh citrus fruits or get any locally but I do have access to the basic ones (maybe even blood oranges or kumquats! maybe...).
Any creative ideas anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
A few suggestions for you:
1. Skewered anything with marmalade dipping sauce
2. Citrus cured salmon from Rhulman's 20
3. Citrus broiled shimp from Fish without a Doubt
Let us know what you choose and how it turned out.
My dinner club is meeting next Saturday - we are making one the Sunday Suppers at Lucques menus.
avocado and grapefruit supremes is a great combo. you could go in a guacamole direction, or do a salsa. for winter, the addition of some pomegranate arils adds great color and pop. (either the guac or salsa can be served in a variety of ways--on endive, with chips of various descriptions, on scallops, etc. )
Preserved lemons! Frittata with leeks and preserved lemons that you cut into squares. Or do deviled eggs with preserved lemons and chives.
