Suggestions needed: Outdoor surf & turf dinner: what appetizers, sides & desserts?

VirginiaCook | Jul 11, 2010 12:01 PM

Good morning!

For the lat 4 years, I have done a sit-down dinner for my husband and his friends. The main course is lobster and steak and we eat outdoors on the patio. We normally have about 14 people. I desperate for suggestions on sides/appetizers/amuse bouche & desserts that will complement the main courses.

This year I am starting with a scallop and plum ceviche.

FYI - I have already done these (so they are out for this year):

1. Lemon-saffron risotto
2. Asparagus in all its forms
3. Crepe suzettes
4. White-Chocolate-Mint-and-Caramel Parfait in chocolate bowls
5. Creme brulee
6. Caramel flan
7. Potatoes gratin

Thanks in advance for all your creative and exciting suggestions!
