Yes.. you are correct. I don't eat seafood, but that doesn't mean I cannot serve them to my guests. My entrée hasn't been included on the website, so these starters were just for the guests to nibble on arrival. I often serve them at my dinner parties even though I don't eat them. It's just nice to serve things that you know other people enjoy !
