Tonight I’m having my consolation dinner for the two cancelled trips to Boston and Gloucester. My friend, who was going with me is coming over with her H and son, so there will be five of us. Nice weather up here, so outside party.
We bought an entire box of King Crab, which I know isn’t native to the East Coast. We also bought a large bag of scallops, and our friends will be bringing some fresh local oysters.
My question is this: is there anything I could add to the seafood dinner that would make it more quintessentially Cape Cod-ish? Either food wise or setting the scene? I’d planned on making a potato salad and Key Lime Pie.
I’m lucky to have been gifted some beautiful plates with a crab in the middle, so those will be on the table with coordinating placemats and napkins.
I’m open to any ideas, and realize I should have posted this question earlier.
