Appetizers can prove beneficial to the creation of appetite as well as a great atmosphere. Ideally try and make several appetizer dishes beforehand, so that guests can nibble as they slowly arrive. Remember that if you dont use many spices, the quality of the dish will depend on the quality of your ingredients, so if you want to go the extra mile, try and get the best out there and splurge. If you can, opt for fresh rather than frozen seafood, since the frozen can be rubbery without being tenderized by cooking for a while in a stew or soup. And always factor in an extra hour into the recommended preparation time this will give you time for mistakes or just to clean up.
