Passed Appetizers:

please order a minimum of 30 per item

Almost any appetizer can be passed! You can choose if you want your bite-size portions to be served on a platter circulated amongst your mingling guests…OR if you prefer them placed on individual mini plates, each garnished separately, and passed to your guests (who usually take one each). Both options work well –  it’s good to know the logistics of your event to make the best decision – so just ask us for guidance if you’re not sure! Passed appetizers always help your food portions stretch further and last longer.  It’s like portion control by our staff, in a less obvious manner. Passing appetizers also assists guest who are then able to ask questions about the recipes we use.

Here are a few menu items that we always elect to pass to guests rather than place on a self-serve buffet:

  • Mini shrimp cocktail shooters:  served in 2 oz. shot cups.  Each shooter contains two – 26/30 count shrimp and cocktail sauce – $2.59 each
  • Shrimp and grits:  mini servings in vintage cups, mini mason jars or tiny plates filled with creamy, southern-style cheese grits topped with mini grilled shrimp – $2.89 each (add mini candied bacon skewer for additional $1.50 each)
  • Minced ginger-sesame seasoned ahi tuna poke:  served in Individually passed white Asian spoon shooters with toasted sesame garnish – $2.75 each
