Fruits De Mer
A plateau de fruits de mer
A plateau de fruits de mer (French for plate of the fruits of the sea) is a seafood dish of raw and cooked shellfish served cold on a platter, usually on a bed of ice.
A plateau de fruits de mer generally consists entirely of shellfish and is served with condiments such as mignonette sauce, cocktail sauce, and lemon.
A plateau de fruits de mer is served cold, usually on a platter covered with a bed of ice. The serving platter is generally held above table level with a stand, and sometimes can contain multiple, elaborate tiers. This is both for visual effect, and because the shellfish are often served in the shell, or on the half shell, which causes them to take up a large area while containing only a bite or two of meat. It can alternatively be served on a bed of seaweed (vraic).
