a first course should be no more than an appetizer...Maybe a maryland crab cake, or medallion of salmon tartare...
Dungeness she crab bisque springs to mind...
Guess it depends on how much you want to impress...and I tend to go overboard in the kitchen..I tend to burst into flames in teh kitchen on occasion to, but that is another story...

In the whole "bachelor has a fridge" theme, if you want easy ....cheese, fruit and crackers, or hummus and veggies.

I assume since you specified "bachelor" that you don't want to do alot of fancy cooking. My favorite quick and easy app that always gets rave reviews (and is the first thing gone):

1 c onions
1 c mayo
1 c cheddar cheese
1 c Parmesan cheese

Mix together, put in lightly oiled casserole, heat until bubbly. Serve with crackers, bread, etc.

I already entered this in another post but it's just too tasty not to mention again.

Tomato Salad

Tomatos
Olive Oil
Black Pepper
and err.....Oregano?? (I would double check that herb - but also works without).

If anyone says anything, mention they serve it in French restaurants. and here

Probably basil, not oregano, with tomatoes.

And with the green oregano. Could you get more festive?

BIG Shrimp wrapped in red and green peppers.

I would jump off of any boat that served hummus

Probably more complicated than what you're looking for, but cf's very own captainKJ's site chefken.com lists following options:

Appetizers (pics)
Appetizers (recipes)


My own favourite appetizers are very simple but look complicated because they involve a propane torch.

Hmm.. for first course for lunch I would go with something like oysters on the half-shell. However, formal first course I believe is soup. Being from the PNW and it being chilly up here I'd go with a dungeness crab bisque, but since it will be warm down there maybe a light rice noodle soup if you all were taking to the nines....

If I served hummus on my boat and you threatened to jump overboard, I would gladly help you along... A simple, no thank you would do.

If it was humus I'd understand but hummus? I'll have some pita with that, thank you.

Make wraps with soft lavash, cut in one-inch lengths and fasten with fancy toothpicks. Filling can be cheese, meat, almond butter, whatever. Soak prunes overnight in Cherry Heering, drain well, stick in a toothpick and offer as a condiment on the same platter. Save the drained liqueuer. It's too good to waste. Goes good in fruit punch.
