This was a high school graduation party. The honoree's family had just remodeled their home and pool and it looks like an island resort. We tried to come up with a menu that would fit the decor but that teenagers would like.

As I posted on the swap, we did all sorts of other things too, but if I had it to do over again, I would narrow it down to this:

HORS D'OEUVRES:
Coconut Shrimp with Tamarind-Ginger Dipping Sauce
Spicy Black Bean Cakes with Crema and Salsa
Queso-stuffed Jalapenos
Scallops Broiled with Prosciutto

BUFFET:
Warm Chicken, Mango and Avocado Salad with Chile-rum Dressing
Beef Kebabs with Sylvia's Jerk Marinade, with Grilled Scallions
Assorted Grilled Sausages
CathyZ's Cilantro-Coconut Rice
Sylvia's Ginger Green Beans
Flatbread with Cumin and Coriander
Cucumber Salad with red onion and red bell pepper
Tropical Fruit Platter

DESSERT:
Pineapple Upside-down Cake
Ginger-Almond Wafers
Marilyn's White Chocolate Coconut Cream Bars
Lemon Bars.
