Seafood Appetizers



Seafood Appetizers are always a winner with the family or friends.

Big restaurants normally begin their main course with a starter of choice before the customer enjoys the reason for visiting.

But at home we “sommer” calls starters appetizers. It could be before the main meal, waiting for guests to arrive or it could be that nobody’s really in an eating mood and just wants to nibble the evening away.

Basic Appetize

Whatever your reason is for creating a plate full of snacks, the first decision should be – what type of a snack – yes?

So you decided on a seafood theme.

It could be baked shrimps with a nice dip. A calamari fried in deep oil with a crust and a dip to fit.

There really are so many different snack-types to make, but if you are one of those people that entertain a lot, it is an excellent idea to make appetizers of a dish that you really would like to get their opinions on.

It is a perfect time and place to “test” your next – or future – meal. It is small.

It is bite-size and it won’t be a waste if it does not go off to well.

If you are the owner of a restaurant like me, it means that, to jump-start interest in these snacks, operators have to up the ante on variety, flavour, health and uniqueness.

Fun finger foods that enhance the overall dining experience can help consumers justify the higher cost associated with purchasing starters before the meal.

Offering a variety in the form of appetizers in small samples may be a clear way to signal value to guests.

When a group visits a restaurant, the members of the dining party expect not only food that tastes great, but also, an experience that is unique and enjoyable.

Appetizer samplers-shareable offerings that promote interactivity - fulfil both needs. Offering a little of this and a little of that while still sticking to your seafood theme, samplers on the menu get guests talking with one another, deciding what to order and then what to taste.

Samplers boost diners 'interest in trying something new at little risk...

...so why not a seafood appetizer...
