What I didn’t know is that in UK there is a band named “Seafood” and in China there is a movie called “Seafood”. Cool, isn’t it?
Now I will present you the seafood salad I made. Fresh, simple, revigorating and it gives you a large smile upon your face. It gave to my boyfriend. 🙂
Here are the ingredients (for 2 salads):
- Seafoods, different spieces (you can find at Metro): scallops, shrimps, baby octopus, surimi. – 300 gr pack
- Cucumber- 1 piece, sliced in 2
- Cabbage - 1 piece. A big one
- Paprika lemon
- Onion - 2 pieces (one for each salad)
- Tomatos - 6 pieces (3 peices for each salad)
- Butter - 2 cubes for the seafood sote
- Fish sauce - 1 spoon for the seafood
- Condiments: salt, pepper with lemon, parsley, basil and salad condiments
- Balsamic vinegar - 2 spoons (1 spoon for each salad)
The instruments needed in the kitchen:
- Chopping board
- Knife, impossible without
- 2 salad containers / bowls
- Wok for cooking the seafood
How I did it:
Cooking the seafood: I started with cooking the seafood. In the wok I put a small butter cube, and once it started melting added the onion. Let it cook for 2 minutes and then I added the sefood. Smelling great. The seafood I let it the way they were, no chopping at all. After 5 minutes of cooking I added some fish sauce. And let the flavor burst into the seafood.
Chopping vegetables: While the seafood was cooking, I started cutting the vegetables for the salad. The tomatoes I sliced them into thin pieces, the cucumber I sliced it round & thin, the paprika I wanted to slice it rectangular and the cabbage…random cutting. I added the vegetables directly into the salad bowls.
Checking: the scallops, shrimps, surimi and octupus I checked the seafood that was cooking in the wok. Tasted it. Good. Beautiful taste. Just a little bit of salt. In a different small bowl I got the seafood out and let it rest for 2 minutes.
Assembling the salad: I started assembling the salad. In the same salad bowls I added, above the vegetables, the seafood. Mixed the salad. Then added salt, lemon pepper, parsley, basil and salad condiments. Then I added balsamic vinegar, no "special" dressing needed.
No plating. Just start eating!
I am a fan of the idea that the salad must be eaten from a bowl and not from a plate so that it…looks good. No, I love to shove the fork in the salad and take a piece of … everything. And that’s what I did.
