Mardis Gras dinner party

ksherk | Feb 14, 201206:13 AM

I'm throwing a dinner party for 10 for Mardis Gras next weekend, and I'm seeking some first course inspiration. Hors d'oeuvres will be crab and jalapeno dip, alongside some pickled veggies. The main will be jambalaya. Dessert will probably gateau de sirop. But I'm at a loss for a first course that fits the theme, isn't too too heavy and perhaps even a palate cleanser between heavy hors d'oeuvres and heavy main.

Oysters mignonette and salad?

Pan barbecued shrimp?

???
