: DATES STUFFED WITH ALMONDS: PEARLY GREATS: Smoked oysters are packed in oil. Drain and pat dry with paper towels. Layer, 1 cracker with a leaf or two of arugula and a plump oyster; garnish the plate with freshly cracked peppers, pink, green and black. Watercress would work well, too. CLAWS CELEBRE aka Lobster Raita: Mix cucumber, seafood, onion, seasonings with yogurt; thin with buttermilk. Separate radicchio leaves, small, curled into a cup shape. Divide seafood salad into four servings. (about 100 cal) BOURSIN Cheese is creamy, flavorful, fairly light. Whip the cheese with softened sun-dried tomatoes. Dieters spread 1 tables on three bread slices. (110 cals for all three). CRABBY ARTICHOKES: Artichoke bottoms are bite-size edible cups, come in a can or jar, cleaned and ready to eat. Fill each 'cup' with a mixture of tarragon and crab salad. (3 cups, filled, 187 cal, 4⅘ g fat) DATES STUFFED WITH ALMONDS: That 's it. Matthew Kenny, a NY chef, so simple, so popular. He leaves the skin on the almond but you could use blanched.
