Seafood Main Course for 8 That Doesn't Break the Bank?

EarlyBird | Jul 21, 2014 02:48 PM

Alright folks,

I may be asking for things that are mutally exclusive, but this weekend my wife and I will be hosting a gathering for my fishing buddies and their wives, for a total of 8 of us. Given that we're a "fishing" group (i.e., spend a lot of time drinking and eating and occasionally fishing), I would like to do a seafood dish, but here are the caveats:

a.) I don't want spend all of my time in the kitchen or at the grill while my friends are visiting. Ideally it's a dish I can do most of the prep before they arrive;

b.) It shouldn't be too expensive, like maybe $10 - $12 a plate (not including wine and so forth);

c.) If it's a one pot type meal, even better.

I should point out that in LA it's supposed to be hot this weekend and we'll be outside, so ideally I have something a bit "light" and summery. I will have a couple of salads as sides.

Thanks for any suggestions.
