Sure, I’d be happy to help you prepare a seafood salad recipe! Here’s a simple and delicious recipe for a Seafood Salad:


For the Salad:

  • 1 pound mixed seafood (shrimp, squid, crab meat, etc.), cooked and chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup cucumber, diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup bell peppers (any color), diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

For the Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Prepare the Seafood: If using raw seafood, cook it according to the instructions until it’s fully cooked. If you’re using pre-cooked seafood, make sure it’s defrosted if frozen. Once cooked and cooled, chop the seafood into bite-sized pieces.
  • Chop the Vegetables: Dice the cucumber, bell peppers, and red onion. Halve the cherry tomatoes and chop the fresh parsley. Combine all these ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Make the Dressing: In a separate bowl, whisk together the extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper. Whisk until the ingredients are well combined.
  • Combine the Salad: Pour the dressing over the chopped vegetables and seafood in the large bowl. Gently toss the ingredients together to coat everything evenly with the dressing. Be careful not to overmix, as seafood can be delicate.

  • Chill and Serve: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate the seafood salad for at least 30 minutes before serving. This allows the flavors to meld together.
  • Serve: Once chilled, give the salad a gentle toss again before serving. You can serve it on a bed of lettuce, in a chilled bowl, or even in individual glasses for an elegant presentation.
  • Garnish and Enjoy: If desired, garnish the seafood salad with additional chopped parsley, lemon wedges, and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil before serving.

This seafood salad can be served as a refreshing appetizer, light lunch, or even as a main dish with some crusty bread on the side. Feel free to customize the recipe by adding your favorite seafood or vegetables, and adjust the seasonings according to your taste preferences.
