Most venues have the ability to cater to allergies, and people with allergies tend to be pretty careful, so more than likely everyone will be fine if you serve seafood to your other guests and have alternative things for Future Sister-In-Law.

If your Future Sister-In-Law has lived to an adult age outside of a plastic bubble then I suspect she should be able to just eat an alternative food while others have seafood.

My own mother is allergic to peanuts, so I do sympathize to some extent with people that suffer bad allergies, but I also feel like the world shouldn’t have to cater to them.

Would Mother-In-Law be willing to help create a “no seafood” table (out of her family/friends) to help minimize SIL’s contact with seafood? If everyone at the table agreed in advance to not having seafood at the table, maybe that would help. Honestly, I think Mother-In-Law is very unreasonable to suggest that there be no seafood at the meal at all…

@Razzmatazz:  If you’re doing a buffet serve the shellfish on a separate table and encourage guests to use different plates to prevent cross contamination.  If it’s plated then make sure the kitchen knows she has an allergy and to prepare and serve her food separate from the shellfish.

@Razzmatazz:  I don’t think that would actually help protect SIL from contact with seafood all that much, LOL, but maybe it would distract Mother-In-Law and get her to focus on a “solution” instead of the problem!
