If you can still get good tomatoes, this shrimp dish is pretty easy for a crowd: http://www.food52.com/recipes...

Both of these sound great...thanks so much! Still deciding also between a hot or cold dish...ugh, cold would be much easier. Thanks again!

You have no fish -- how about a whole poached salmon served cold (or room temp) with a selection of cold sauces?

I would suggest Jacques Pepin's salmon roasted at 200 degrees for 40 (or so) minutes. The beauty of this is you can get whole sides, ask the fishmonger to take off the skin, and bake it right on the platter you're serving it on. He calls for herbs over it, but I prefer it with olive oil, salt and pepper, then when it's done, topped with his tomato, caper, onion sauce (sauvigot in his latest book). Made this for a crowd of 40 during the summer (with chicken and ribs) and it was a big hit. Plus, if it goes longer than 40 minutes it doesn't seem to affect it. It's very moist and works at room temperature, too.

Just added Seafood Gumbo, serving 50. Easy and different. Serve with rice and bread - DONE!

I love the salmon idea, but this shrimp dish is good warm, cold or at room temp http://www.food52.com/recipes...

Although I don't eat it, the salmon sounds like a good idea, nice presentation. The Seafood Gumbo sounds fantastic too---my husband just suggested a seafood Jambalaya. Aaah...now I have too many choices, :) Thanks everyone! These are all fantastic!
