A good friend is turning 40, and his favorite place on earth is/was New Orleans, and so, we are throwing him a suprise Mardi-Gras party.
I need menu help! It will be an evening party, mostly for cocktails (i.e. not dinner), but I will be providing a buffet for grazing/snacking so people have something to sop up the hurricanes with!
Here's what I'm thinking:
Grilled sausages and shrimp
I'd also like to serve some kind of finger food/hors d'oeuvres that do not need to be served hot. Usually I'd serve something like a crudite platter with dip and a cheese plate, but those don't seem particularly "cajun" in theme.
Also, what (if anything) should I serve with the sausages and bbq shrimp?
One caveat: my oven doesn't work, so nothing baked!
