Seafood salad

Version 2

I know, I know … I’ve been over dosing on seafood lately, but it is the “period” for it. Also, we’ve been going to way-too-many parties lately. Health food you say? absolutely not! delicious food? yes, alcohol? plenty, and deserts? galore. I kind of like to make up for it the next few days by sticking to “healthy” food. Doesn’t always work, but I try. Yesterday’s salmon recipe, was on one such health-oriented-promise-to-be-good day.

But, talk about parties, here is a seafood salad that is absolutely delicious and a great & welcome contribution to any party invitation.

Again, no specific quantities or weights please, just use your own imagination.

Ingredients:

1 frozen squid

1 small onion chopped

1 bay leaf

1/4 white wine

set aside and start your squid

chop the squid up into small bite size squares, also cut the tentacles into smallish pieces

saute the chopped onion is some olive oil, add the cut up squid, the bay leaf, and stir a bit till the squid starts shrinking, then add the wine and simmer until squid is tender

add to your salad bowl

now the shrimps:

put in a frying pan, a tiny bit of olive oil, paprika, pepper flakes, and stir around till the shrimp becomes pink and firm-ish. You need to try a couple so as to not over cook (sometimes I feel like I’ve already eaten, with all the tasting I do!)

add to your salad bowl

add the chopped pepper and the chopped parsley, some lemon juice, some olive oil (a few drops of Tabasco if you wish), mix well with your hands, and set it aside till its cool.
