Family-Style Summer Seafood Meals

From casual to elegant, these seafood centerpieces are best when served family-style at an intimate summer dinner party. Spend hours dawdling over freshly boiled shrimp, crabs, or crawfish, or prepare a more composed fruits de mer, a chilled seafood tower -- its precariously stacked offerings can be plucked from their places using your fingers in place of utensils.
