Cream cheese blended with smoked salmon makes for a good spread on your favorite crackers (note: you can add some capers to the spread if you like capers).

Snacks For Evening Cruise

Jalapeño peach marmalade(blended with creme cheese) or red pepper hummus are not the boring old normal choices. Peppered salami, havarti cheese and flat pretzels are a few other non standards we enjoy.

Greeings,
Mr. k. A plethora of choices but I don't want to suggest "the same old stuff". So...What is YOUR "same old stuff"?

Chicken wings. Pizza bites. Even sliders. Vegetables on a vegetable tray. Perhaps even a tray of cold cuts with some small croissants to slide them into, some lettuce, tomatoes. Fruit. Berries. Tray of cheese and crackers for those who like cheese. I don't eat it.

My all time favourite snack is king prawns stuffed with a dab of blue cheese, wrapped in prociutto, and grilled on the barbie or a minute or two.
Quick and easy, but soooo good!

Possum-belly soup. Granny says it cures a cold, too.

You appear to be in Louisiana so shrimp, oysters, crawfish, poor boys, soft shell crab, etc. come to mind. As well as a pot of gumbo or a mixed boil.

But if that's you "same old stuff", then mini tacos, lolly pop lamb chops and or lolly pop chicken drumettes.

Home made salsa or crab dip. Fondue can be fun if the waters calm.


Of course there is always Jell-O shots.

Glad to see the "Adult Beverages" are first!

Might I suggest smoked Salmon?

Cheers

I like the idea of assorted crackers and veggies then chang the toppings. Some of my favorites are:
Crab dip
Salmon
Tuna ahi
Runny Brie (microwave it)
Different cheese dips

Crackers stacked with sharp chedar and apple slices are always good and pretty easy to make. If you are going to cook, I'll often make chicken satay with dipping sauce. A friend of ours made strawberries (hulled) soaked in Grand Marnier with whipped cream (she kept them in the fridge in ice trays until ready to serve). Ready made pizza crust with your choice of toppings, cooked on the grill and cut into bite sized pieces. I'll second the earlier suggestion for buffalo chicken dip, but we usually use a cooked chicken from the store. One more that often goes over well is canned or cooked chicken chopped up with mayo, curry powder and chopped grapes - use as a cracker dip.

Make it simple. You are supplying the boat, maybe supply the water, wine, soda, as well and ask your guests to bring the snacks.

This is one of my favorites...pairs perfectly with margaritas:

COWBOY CAVIAR
  • 15 oz can black bean, rinsed and drained
  • 15.8 oz can blackeye peas, rinsed and drained
  • 15.2 oz can corn
  • 10 oz spicy diced tomatoes, drained (Rotel is great)
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 2 avocados, diced (should be ripe but not soft)
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ½ cup zesty Italian dressing
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 bag tortilla chips
Instructions
  1. Pour all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix well.
  2. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, if necessary.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.

If you feel the need to be fancy, buy the "scoops" tortilla chips and put 'em out filled on a tray.

Thanks Peggie, I'll try that one this evening.

Assuming the vessel and conditions are acceptable:
Fondue.

Prep is all of 30 minutes of chopping and cutting and can be done beforehand at home.

Get a collection of veggies, meats, and dipping sauces and spread it out for guests with a pot of boiling broth (or wine, but we don't care for the oil). Our favorites are crusty bread and cauliflower, broccoli, potatoes, yams for veggies. Beef and chicken, but also shrimp, fish, and shucked oysters for meats.

As the evening winds down bring out a chocolate pot (Highly suggest adding Grand Marnier liquor) with strawberries, apples, and angelfood cake.

Big downside is that there is an open flame/heating element, so this is something for dockside parties only!
