I guess (thanks to all) I will go with the gorganzola spread, hot dogs grilled and topped with different toppings then cut in half for finger food, skewers with cheese, fruit etc.

I agree that shrimp is the best but someone in our group always gets nice big shrimp so I will let them continue.

Grill sea scallops (get the U-10 size) wrapped in pancetta. Or you don't even have to wrap it in the pancetta. Serve it with this sauce which you can make in advance:

Caper and Roasted Serrano Chimichurri

1 Serrano (or Jalapeno) Chile, roasted, skin and seeds removed
3 Tbsp. Capers, rinsed and dried
2 Tbsp. Thyme Leaves
6 Tbsp. Italian Parsley Leaves
4 Tbsp. Mint Leaves
4 Tbsp. Lime Juice
4 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Kosher Salt to taste

Method:

In a food processor, combine all of the ingredients except for the salt and pulse until rough chopped. Transfer to a non-reactive container, season to taste with salt and add more olive oil to cover. Store in the fridge and keep cold.

The chimichurri is pretty potent. You only need about a tsp. per scallop at the most. This recipe will give you about 2/3 cups of sauce.
