cold Christmas Eve buffet?

Procrastibaker | Dec 19, 2009 07:06 AM

Hi all,
We are trying to do a cold buffet for Christmas Eve-- something we can lay out after church. I am struggling over a protein. Normally I'd think gravlax or smoked salmon/fish and other smoked meats. Trouble is, I'm pregnant. So while I'm normally not super strict about this stuff, I'm not keen on a whole meal of things I'm not supposed to eat. Other thoughts are cold poached salmon, but think it would be farmed this time of year (right?) which I try to avoid. Poached chicken? Any ideas or recipes would be great. We need to have a meat/fish or my FIL will revolt.
