  • Appetizers

    Each year I go to a New Years Eve party at our close friend's house and many people bring food. I would like to bring an apppetizer this year so I am asking for suggestions. Something cold and exciting but easy to make as my schedule is tight and I won't have much prep time.
    Suggestions?
    Thanks.

      Ok.
      Simple but efficient.
      You need Foie gras if possible(a can of 4 onces is enough).Duck liver paté works well too.
      Bread for toasts
      Black cherry marmelade(or basic cherry)

      You use a glass,diameter 2 inches,to make round canapés in the slices of bread ( or use canapés bread),so the tallest slices you get,the more rounds you get..
      You work with a foie gras,at room temperature.You have to gently spread the foie gras on the bread,not like butter,but rather like a slice put on the bread.You have to get some nice looking thickness.
      With a tea spoon,put some marmelade on the half of the foie gras portion,in order to keep the other half for some crushed pepper mill,and a pinch of sea salt.

      If you have 10 minutes free,you can cooked chopped onion in sugar and vinegar,in order to confite it a bit.Then you can add some onion on the foie gras.

      The idea is to create a salty/sweety taste .
      This is a canapé i use on special occasion.
      Californian white wine taste good with this.

      I also prepare "easy to make" smoked salmon rolls.
      Take 2.5 onces of thick sour cream.Add some dill,pepper,a very small pinch of salt,lemon juice,finly chopped shallot,and a extremely light pinch of curry powder(or paste)
      Mix gently with a spoon (no blender).
      Use nice and big smoked salmon slices.The idea is to spread the cream on the slice,then to roll it delicately and to chill the slices 10 minutes in the freezer .
      You take your sharpest knife (or a kind of razor blade,better),and you slice the roll in portions of 1.5 centimeter (thinner is a bit hard)
      Pick a tooth pick in each .You can also pick before a caper then pick it in the roll.

        Pictures only but it's a very easy idea.

            Sounds disgusting to me.

                "A white sport coat...and a pink..crustacean.."

                Yeah, if you want to make an impression go with what Half Pint suggests. Nothing says holiday cheer like a huge plate of chilled, dead crustaceans complimented with a horseradish/tabasco sauce. Be sure to get the large size though. Something on the order of 16-20 to the pound. That will ensure that each shrimp will require more than one bite. Do discourage double dipping whenever possible...
                Here in the states you can buy a shrimp ring, already arranged with sauce in the center, for about $10-15. Merry Holidays!

                    Bacon wrapped dates. Easy to make and oh so tasty. If you stuff them with blue cheese expect a stampede...

                          I really like stuffed mushrooms (with crabmeat) for an appetizer.

                            Really, why would you go for anything complicated when you can probably impress people just as well with something cheap but tasty?

                            I believe in the US you have appetizers known as pigs in a blanket. Make them tastier by the addition of onion salt. Make a batch with powdered ginger (instead of the onion powder) added for the people who are a fussy eaters.

                            A few variations.






                            In Australia we have something similar called a sausage roll. Here's a good example.

                              Nothing mentioned youn have to make or can make youself. It's not a main course, just things to get the taste buds active. That is a thing I like about the shrimp, they taste great but not filling.
