Need fish course for Italian themed dinner

free sample addict aka Tracy L | Jun 28, 2006 05:06 AM

I want to make an outstanding dinner for DH's b-day. I have most of the menu sketched out except for the fish course. Here are my parameters:
- Easy to make with minimal cooking involved or something that can be made ahead of time

- Ideally I'd like it to be cold dish. I have in mind an Italian style ceviche using shrimp or snapper or Grav Lax using trout, but am open to suggestions

- No salmon

- Nothing too heavy or creamy it will be during the hotttest days of the summer

My menu: Amuse of cherry tomato, vodka and salt. Apps, melon with proscuitto, focaccia and mozz canapes, deviled eggs stuffed with an anchovie, tuna and lemon mixture. Entree, Steak Florentine and Ricotta Gnocchi. Dessert, Olive oil gelato with strawberries macerated in balsamic vinegar and chocolate biscotti.
