Please Help with a Menu for a Casual Dinner for 15

herby | Dec 22, 201104:57 PM

Once again I am turning to you, my trusted Chowhounds, for help. I have a dinner to prepare for fifteen people (ten adults). We are in Bahamas on vacation and this will be a casual affair that I am not sure how to put together. Food that is available here is not we all are used to - all comes from the US but the quality and variety is unpredictable. What I have available is 10# of lobster (assume alive but could be frozen) and a large grouper. I have no idea how larger grouper gets and never cooked one. Is it worth getting? The one and only grocery store has s/b chicken breasts and some times whole chicken. There is decent beef good for a pot roast (which does not go with the climate!) or to grind; NZ frozen lamb chops, cheese is mostly cheddar and mozzarella. I thought that we will make a nice rum based cocktail (not sure what) and serve everything casual appy style. Potatoes Anna is another thing that poped into my head.

Any suggestions are gratefully received and please point me in recipes direction - I have no cookbooks with me!

Thank you muchly!
