Plateau de Fruits de Mer with Two Sauces

The key to this dish is to leave the heavy lifting to a fish purveyor, who often will steam the shellfish and shuck the oysters for a minimal charge. Make the simple sauces earlier in the day, and your work is done. For the serving tray, buy crushed ice or place a few cups of ice in a plastic bag, wrap in a dish towel, and crush using a rolling pin or a meat tenderizer.
