Thread: Help! Fish dishes for buffet please

    Help! Fish dishes for buffet please

    Shop Now
    I have invited my friends over for a buffet lunch next weekend. Lots of them don't eat meat although they eat fish. I'm just not prepared to serve all the carby crap that veggies generally eat - any suggestions for fish that would work in a buffet? Obviously smoked salmon, but I need other options too.
    Thanks in advance for your help...

    Would stick with salmon, baked, and, perhaps smoked trout.

    So, a few ideas....

    rainbow Trout and salmon can be cooked alike in this way:
    in a foil "boat" rub olive oil, black pepper, fresh ginger, fresh chilli, spring onion, red sweet long peppers slices of lemon
    - bake until cooked, remove the extras and serve!

    tuna nicoise salad

    smoked salmon parcels with cream cheese, chives and black pepper inside

    you could fashion little goujons of cod/hake/haddock with a mayo/garlic mayo/spicy may dip

    scallps wrapped in proscuttio - or even better on cocktail sticks with chorizo

    If you have some favourite flavours/fishes I could create some dishes/amalgamate for you? It's my favourite thing to do

    Hope it goes well!

    just had another one!

    I forgot to ask if a hot buffet!

    King prawns, marinade in garlic, chilli, lemon juice, splash lime and chopped corriander. then put on sticks and griddle in a little olive oil/bbq if you can

    Prawn piri piri - as above but cook in olive oil in a wok/large pan

    can create lots of different mayo's for dipping

    prawn cocktail ; made with large king prawns

    prawns - in shells, in a large pan with garlic, olive oil, chillis, lemon juice, salt black pepper

    mussells in white wine [recipie not made this so would have to look online]

    I've had this recipe bookmarked for a while, haven't tried it though:

    Shrimp salad would also be yummy. You could do a traditional one with mayo and celery, I do a Thai-inspired one (of all places, I got it from a Weight Watchers cookbook):

    -1/4 c fresh lime juice
    -2 Tbs chopped cilantro
    -2 Tbs chopped mint
    -1 Tbs fish sauce
    -1-2 tsp honey
    -12 oz salad shrimp (I buy frozen and thaw)
    -1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
    -1/2 medium cucumber, peeled and julienned
    -1 large scallion, sliced

    Combine the lime juice, cilantro, mint, fish sauce, and honey. Add the remaining ingredients and toss to combine.

    Soup! Just take a bunch of random fish, chop it up, and boil it in water with some root vegetables and hearty greens like kale. I like to add a little fish sauce and soy sauce (is that very primal? I'm not sure, but I only use the fermented kind without any wheat) for flavor instead of straight salt. Hot sauce and pepper wouldn't go amiss either. I made this soup with 4 pounds of random fish cuts and it fed my husband and I, lunch and dinner, for a whole week, it was even good cold.

    To me, nothing is grosser than room temperature fish that's supposed to be hot. If you're not able to keep it hot, I'd go for something cold like shrimp cocktail.
