Apps and side dish ideas for crab boil

Andiereid | Jun 3, 2007 06:19 AM

I'm having a party next Saturday (June 9) and we'll have about 25 people. We're having a man come in and cook blue crab, littleneck clams, and shrimp. I had thought I'd boil some potatoes and corn to go with and maybe coleslaw? I need ideas for nibbles to set out beforehand and for side dishes. Here are the requirements:

For once, I will NOT have time for much cooking or prep, which is why we've hired someone to come in and cook the main course. I would have liked for him to do all the food, but unfortunately, he really only cooks the fish/crabs he catches, and I did want good, local seafood caught that day, and he was our best option. So I'm in charge of the other food. I have family coming in on Wednesday, and then more family arriving on Friday, so I want to spend my time visiting with them, not cooking and doing a lot of prep work. We'll all be working together on Saturday to set up the back yard for the party, so we won't have much time for cooking,

Thanks for your help!
