Our challenge in the summer is we're so busy that we need dishes that are easy to serve. We have access to wonderful fresh shellfish so I'm thinking of a seafood salad similar to ones we had Christmas Eves of my youth. As I recall, they consisted of scallops, shrimp, calamari and mussels. Not exactly ceviche-like, where texture and quality starts degrading on day 2. These salads seemed to get better with age. If I recall they were still safe to eat on day 5 or so. Maybe a bit of quick pickling involved with the marinades?
Is this a childhood memory gone awry, or has anyone here any knowledge of this dish?
