Help! Pan-Asian party ideas

Chowpatty | Jul 19, 2005 07:38 PM

Help, please! I've invited about 25 people for a pan-Asian birthday barbecue before giving much thought to the menu. Now I realize I need several ideas that are not too expensive or difficult -- i.e. I can't buy sushi to go, or have a lot of dishes with shrimp and other pricey items or spend all day making spring rolls. Many thanks!
Here's what I need:
-A refreshing summer cocktail with an Asian touch that can be make ahead of time in pitchers.
- Snack/hors d'oeuvre ideas besides Japanese rice crackers and wasabi peas. This is obviously not the time for the usual cheese and olives plate.
- Salads and barbecue items. I'm thinking spicy coleslaw, peanut noodles, Asian baby back ribs...but I don't know what else and I can't make a million things by myself. Kids and partner are only of limited use.
Oh, and I'm planning the Black Pearl cake for the birthday!
