Cold Seafood salads have been eaten in the hotter coastal climates for centuries.

Now that we (in the colder northern climates) are able to purchase seafood more readily, we can also enjoy these more exotic salads. These simple salads recipes can be made with shrimp, crab, lobster, calamari, mussels, clams, octopus, squid - just to name some of the more common seafood used in salads.

All seafood being used in these simple salad recipes must be properly cooked. It is important to note that seafood can go bad very quickly and must be handled accordingly.

Neptune Recipe - a mixture of imitation or real crab meat, with other diced vegetables. A seafood meal in itself.

Octopus Recipe - made with fresh or canned octopus, these salads can be served as a light lunch or a side dish. It is a traditional Puerto Rican Christmas dish.
