My mother-in-law Millie makes this salad, which is fabulous!
1 Lb Calamari, cleaned and cut into tubes
1 Lb Shrimp, shelled, deveined
1/2 Small onion, sliced thin
1/2 Cup celery, cut on the diagonal
In a pot, bring water to a boil. Boil the Calamari for no more than 30 seconds. Remove from water and place in a bath of cold water to stop the cooking. Do the same for the shrimp. (Or purchase frozen cooked shrimp and defrost in the refrigerator).
Place the seafood into a colandar in a bowl to drain, cover with wrap and place in the refrigerator until chilled and well drained.
Pat dry the seafood to make sure all excess water is removed. In a serving bowl, add the seafood, sliced onions, and celery. Squeeze the juice of the lemons over the salad. Add olive oil to coat along with some salt.
Refrigerate, covered, for a few hours to marinate. (I actually make this the night before, which helps to marinate the seafood).
8 to 10 servings.
