Ok so i was asked to come up with something for an upcoming event where we, and 50 other restaurants will be serving a couple hundred people. Our restaurant is based around oysters/raw bar. My gm originally was thinking shrimp cocktails, but i think we are over that idea, to plain, to many people have done it. She also was thinking tuna tataki, but ours is nothing special. We both agree that oysters should be used, but moreso for presentation, we will just end up using half shell oyster shells.
Im not to sure about the specifics yet, i will be asking her tomorrow, if we can bring a skillet out there then itll be a diffrent story, but for now i think the idea is to serve something cold.
I have several ideas already, but id like to hear any suggestions that you guys have.
My current ideas:
- Tuna & Mango tartare
- Tuna cube with sesame crust with a soy base & ginger
- Shrimp cocktail in a oyster shell
I will update this thread when i get more information, this is a pretty big thing for me, im not looking for someone to give me a recipe or do all the work, just some ideas from you more experienced folk :)
