Spanish Seafood Salad with Vegetables
The following recipe shows you how to combine three kinds of seafood with mixed vegetables and season the salad with extra-virgin olive oil and two kinds of vinegar. This is a simple yet flavorful Spanish seafood salad recipe. You can use any mixed vegetables you like, although peas, corn, and carrots are probably the most popular type. If you are not a fan of frozen veggies, you can chop and boil your own fresh vegetables instead. Pretty much any vegetables would work with the seafood and if you are making your own you can try broccoli or cauliflower, or even mushrooms, zucchini or whatever else you like.
You can also choose from ready-cooked seafood or cook your own. In the following recipe we suggest you use cooked mussels, but you can sauté your own shrimp and scallops to perfection, either chopping them into smaller pieces or leaving them whole. You can also use squid rings, clams, or other sorts of seafood. This is a very mix-and-match kind of dish and you are not going to ruin it by adding other veggies or other kinds of seafood.
This Spanish seafood salad recipe is nice served warm or chilled. You can serve it as soon as you make it, when the seafood is still warm, or you can let it sit in the refrigerator until you are ready for it. Serve it within a few hours of making it for the best results, perhaps with some crusty bread and aioli or garlic mayonnaise on the side for an authentic touch of Spain.
