Preparation

  1. The day before serving, make the octopus salad: In a large bowl, whisk together the orange zest, orange juice, ginger juice, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, mirin, apple cider vinegar, jalapeño, sugar, olive oil, and salt. Add the octopus and toss to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate the octopus in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. Make the mignonette sauce: In a small serving bowl, stir together the shallot, red wine vinegar, and crushed black peppercorns. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Make the crab dip. In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese, mayonnaise, Old Bay seasoning, garlic powder, horseradish, lemon zest and juice, Worcestershire sauce, and salt. Mix well. Gently fold in the crab meat and chives, then season with the salt. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  4. Shuck the oysters: Wrap a kitchen towel around your hand and an oyster, leaving the pointed end of the oyster exposed. Using an oyster knife, carefully wedge the knife into one side of the point and use firm, even pressure to twist to open the oyster. Unwrap the oyster from the towel, then use the knife to work around the top shell, disconnecting the muscle. Remove the top shell and gently run the knife along the bottom shell to release the oyster. Repeat with the remaining oysters. Arrange the oysters in the bottom shells on a small platter of crushed ice with the mignonette sauce and a lemon half.
  5. Assemble the board: Spread the crushed ice on a 26 x 18-inch baking sheet. Top with the other baking sheet. Line with butcher’s paper.
  6. Transfer the octopus salad to a serving dish and garnish with the micro cilantro, then place on the pan, along with the oyster platter. Transfer the crab dip to a serving dish and place on the pan, then garnish with chives. Add the butter lettuce leaves, then top with the ahi poke salad. Arrange the lox, cocktail shrimp, cocktail sauce, prepared horseradish, seaweed salad, grilled bread, crackers, cucumber, crab claws, blood orange slices, and pickled vegetables. Top the lox with the capers. Add the lemons to the pan.
  7. Serve immediately.
  8. Enjoy!
