There are many fish recipe options available when you are looking to throw a nautical themed party

In order for your party menu to stand out in the crowd, you will want to try something just a little different than the norm. This recipe is for a delicious cedar plank pepper honey salmon.

What You Will Need:

1/4 cup of pineapple juice
2 tablespoons of white vinegar
2 (12 inch) cedar planks (untreated)
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
3/4 cup of honey
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
6 boneless and skinless salmon fillets

First prepare the cedar planks by soaking them in water for about 2 hours. You can put a little bourbon in the water as well if you want.

Simmer together the soy sauce, lemon juice, pineapple juice, olive oil and honey over a medium high heat. When it starts to simmer, bring the heat back down to medium low and stir in the cayenne pepper, 1 teaspoon of black pepper, paprika, garlic powder and the sugar. Simmer some more for about 15 minutes, stirring every now and again, until it is syrupy; set aside when done.

Prepare your grill at medium heat and place the planks on the grate. Wait for them to start to smoke and crackle. Once it does, the salmon is ready to start cooking. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste on the fillets and put them on the grill and cook for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes spoon some sauce on the fillets and continue cooking them for another 5 minutes or until they are opaque.

You can use the sauce for when it comes time to serve the meal.

Keep the guests moving, laughing, and entertained with these Nautical Party Tips. Try creating a menu to match the celebration.

Swab the decks and hoist the sails for a Nautical party theme. Nautical party themes are great for weddings, Bon Voyage parties, graduations, and retirements. Your invitations can resemble cruise tickets or passports, and you can have them stamped with different ports o’ call during the bash. Let the guests board your party under Nautical Arches, which provide excellent photo opportunities. Greet them dressed as Captain Stubing of Love Boat fame and have the dress code be that of a tourist. Make sure to hand out lots of disposable cameras to record the various interpretations of tourist that you’ll be sure to get!

Make or buy portholes, ocean murals, and/or netting to decorate your walls and bring in the salty air. Blue, white, and red streamers and balloons and ship decorations will add to the nautical theme. Post pictures of famous ships all around and play music from the South Pacific, Titanic, Love Boat, and Gilligan’s Island. Add Calypso and Hawaiian tunes, as well.

This exciting celebration is the perfect time for creative desserts and other party foods designed especially for this celebration. These items are always a great addition to a celebration and most often the addition of delicious foods that are designed especially for this celebration will make everyone feel very special. More often than not, these great party foods and desserts will add a lot of fun to the celebrated event. Your cruise line menu should include treasures from the sea. Shrimp, lobster or crab cakes, and linguine with clam sauce are good choices. Let the little ones eat fish sticks. Serve a spinach salad and French bread, or cater your menu to the specific destination of your cruise. Cruises tend to be lavish with the food, so provide a large choice of fare and use nautical-themed paper goods found at your local party supply store. Provide wine and sparkling cider.

Party activities can include the Limbo, dancing, Bingo, and casino-type games. Your guests may never want to touch foot on land again! By just adding even one simple food item to the menu will help create a complete Nautical event mood.

Pin the Sail on the Boat:

Most hosts will find that fun and exciting activities such as this are always a great addition to any type of celebration. More often than not fun activities in which everyone can play and participate will liven up the event and make it very special. For this reason, planning in advance will be very beneficial for the host. This is a spin off on the traditional Pin the Tail on the Donkey to give it a more nautical feel. First get a large picture of a boat without a sail. You can download one off the internet. Just make sure it is of good resolution because you would want to print it out on a large sheet of paper. Now stick this picture on a large piece of cardboard. Then stick a picture of proportionately sized sailed on another piece of cardboard and cut it out. Stick a nail or pin into it. At the party give your guests turns at being blindfolded and trying to pin the sail onto the big picture of the boat at the right position.
