spicy dinner menu aid

Ok, folks. I have a menu challenge for y'all. I'm going to be cooking a birthday dinner for my friend Duane, who has a great love for all things of heat - capsicum, garlic, wasabi, or otherwise. I know a few things: cocktails and snacks are going to include gingered lemon&lime drops with sweet & spicy toasted almonds, the main course is going to be a shrimp and scallop etouffe, i'll follow it with a salad (maybe my caesar - Adam's been telling him about it), and end with something Chocolate. This leaves me needing an amuse-bouche and a starter, and potentially a different salad. Any advice? The entree is going to be rich,and full of heat -- so i'd like to balance the mouthfeel a bit with the app. I like the idea of doing something southern-fusion for the app as well, but i'm not heart-set on it. I think i'm going to do something with chanterelles for the amuse-bouche, but i'm not set on that, either. Thoughts? Help? Comment away!

My favorite spicy southern appetizer is jalapeno hush puppies.

It's been years since I've made them, but this looks about like the recipe I used:
