What to cook?

I usually have my onboard parties catered. Say you are having a small party on board 6 people max and you have a full galley and grill. What do you like to serve?

Depends on the people. If they are visitors I would probably go with local seafood - lobster.

Whatever I feel like cooking that night or what looks good to me at the grocery. How about grilled seasoned bacon wrapped pork tenderloin, fried apples and baked sweet potatoes? That might be on my menu tonight. Or maybe cedar planked salmon. Ok, now I gotta go to the store.

I'm always a fan of taco/fajita bar for dinner parties. Shrimp, fish, chicken, steak, homemade pico de gallo, veggies and fixings. Every one can find something they like. Use the smaller tortillas. Easier to handle and encourages more sampling.

Hey Paul, good to here from you. We have had that same meal with the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin, just not on our little trawler. My wife also makes a mean tomato pie to go with this .

Ironic! The last thing I cooked on board was puttenesca! I should mention my daughter will be there and she has Celiac. (no gluten)

Everyone likes seafood, just don't know whether I want to make it a huge production. I could do Portugese garlic shrimp over jasmine rice with a side of asparagus. Thats pretty easy.

Now, how about a festive 4th of july dessert?

Some recent meals on board.

Make some bread before they arrive so they are hit with that aroma as they board - that will get the appetites going!

Don't forget wine - wine with everything!

Chops, Bahamian style rice and peas, cauli.

Teryaki flank steak

Home made pizza

Sides of conch salad

Shrimp salad

Crab cakes with feta and pepper salad

Crab stuffed salmon with pasta

I'm coming to your boat Menzies!!!!!! Look out!

Seriously, those meals look fantastic! I'm going to go with the garlic shrimp and small steak fillets. Surf and turf!

Maybe a triffle for dessert.

Try going Mediterranean. Tabuli salad, stuffed grape leafs, veggies with humus and small cubed tenderloin skewers marinated in olive oil and lemon juice cooked over the grill. Most of this can be prepared the day before with the exception of grilling the tenderloin.

I would try and keep it simple. Also try and think about clean up after. Maybe just do something that would only use the grill such as steaks and grilled chicken. You could also grill veggies such as peppers. Maybe add an easy salad then you have yourself a meal!
