Top 10 Superyacht Appetizers for A Mid-Afternoon Snack

Snacking does not mean that you have to resort to a dull handful of nuts or a bag of chips. There are a myriad of fine dining options that your superyacht Chef can whip up from the comfort of his galley. Tasting appetizers prepared with local produce and adapted to local cuisines and tastes are a big hit amongst those whose palates are refined and geared towards the more delicate and delicious things in life. Whether you want to gratify your taste buds with a delightful range of caviars and ceviches, to simple and fresh tapas, take your pick from these Michelin-star worthy superyacht appetizers.

 This twist on the Central American classic calls for sashimi-grade sea bass and diced ripe papaya. The somewhat soft combination of the two is brought to life with the healthy and crunchy crisps.

8. Chicken Satay with Peanut Dipping Sauce and Spicy Green Mango Salad

These simple grilled chicken skewers are magnified by the sweet yet mildly spicy chunky peanut accompaniment. An added bite or two of fiery unripened mango drizzled with tangy lime juice brings forth a burst of South East Asian flavors.
