I need a seafood dessert

For my family's Christmas meal, we are going for a seafood theme. Sounds simple enough but I have been given the task of bringing a seafood dessert. I have no idea where to even begin. Anyone want to give me some mind blowing ideas?

Do you have to have the actual seafood as an ingredient or can you use something like fish sauce?

Crab meat cheesecake. If you would like the recipe, send private message and I will be happy to oblige.

They didn't really make that clear. I was thinking crab rangoons but that is too easy.

Just the thought of seafood in a dessert is stomach churning to me.
Who in your family gave you this assignment? My guess is you're leg is being pulled big time!

I love Jenny's fish cake picture.......show up with something like that and the last laugh will be yours!

I always seem to bring the sweets so naturally they gave me this task.

Smoked salmon cheesecake. It really isn't sweet though.

You could always make blueberry jello in clear cups and add Swedish fish (like gummy bears).
