Hi all! Any suggestions for a seafood appetizer that is cooked, but served cool?

Tasked with a seafood appetizer for a potluck party, requiring minimal assembly, but also friendly for pregnant friends. Thanks in advance!

I like the use of endive as the delivery system here. It's a tasty, under appreciated vegetable.

I have a recipe for Moules Ravigote posted here - totally make ahead, cooked and served cool. Longtime favorite of mine, I usually serve it on a big platter for people to help themselves.

This one is very popular at my parties. Plus no work at all... http://www.foodandwine... I sometimes add red pepper flakes. Sometimes a touch of cumin. Lemon zest. You can play with flavors

Good tasting dishes from three fishes, all of which are friendly to pregnant women and 2 of which (oily or dark fish) are especially good for them.
1) British mackerel pate. serve with rye bread or crisp toast. For example, this recipe:
guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/wordofmouth/2012/may/24/how-perfect-smoked-mackerel-pate
2) Sardines, various recipes using fresh or canned, especially from Sicily or Portugal. Some cooked then served hot, others at room temp (if either of those fit your plan).
3) Whitefish spread or salad. A Jewish deli appetizer, which can be served on breads, crackers or vegetables (endive, cucumber etc). See this Mark Siegel recipe from epicurious:
