This classic Italian seafood salad recipe antipasto style can be made with any kind of seafood you like. So feel free to adjust what you are using according to what seafood is available.
It goes without saying fresh seafood is best, although you can use thawed seafood if you drain it well before cooking it. Use fresh lemon juice rather than bottled, for the same reason.
The seafood is cooked individually in this seafood salad antipasto recipe and then everything is tossed together with the simple lemon and extra-virgin olive oil based dressing and the salad is left to chill, so the flavors can blend and combine nicely.
This would be a good seafood salad recipe for a party since it is supposed to be taken out of the refrigerator half an hour before serving. This means you can serve it as the first guests are arriving and it is fine to sit out for an hour.
