These crowd pleasing recipes are light-years beyond the tired old 'chip-and dip' and 'meat-on-stick' variations.

Many fish and seafood dishes adapt perfectly to party appetizers and small tapas servings. Clams and mussels can be served on the half shell; crab cakes can be made in the always delightful 'mini' size and served with a tiny dab of sauce on top; shrimp, scallops, and fish pieces can be served on fancy picks.

Give one or more of these a try at your next party-- and then sit back and enjoy the accolades.
