This a favorite of ours, inspired from Pat and Mary Scanlan’s fabulous dinner parties.  What could be more lovely of a starter?  Simply serve on a bed of fresh greens with a side of horseradish sauce and spicy cocktail sauce, with a few lemons for garnish:

  • a dozen oysters on the half-shell
  • stone crab claws
  • cooked, jumbo cocktail shrimp
  • caviar
  • smoked whitefish or trout
  • blue crab pieces
