I was going to buy store bought seafood salad for dinner but they were out. So, I improvised by getting imitation crabmeat and using a small package of lobster meat from my freezer. My husband loves cucumber but doesn't like celery. By mixing the two together in equal amounts he didn't notice the cucumber. Turned out delightfully well.

Instructions
  1. Chop crabmeat and lobster meat into small dice (Macédoine); sides measuring approximately ¼ inch (6mm). Add to medium size serving bowl. Add chopped celery and chopped cucumber also small dice. Lightly mix.
  2. Combine celery salt, white sugar, salt & pepper, seafood spice, dried parsley and paprika in small bowl or measure cup. Distribute over the seafood mix.
  3. Fold in mayonnaise a little at a time until desired consistency. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or until just prior to serving.
  4. NOTE: Mix in the mayonnaise a little at a time so you do not add too much mayo. You can purchase this seafood blend from Gullah Gourmet Inc. http://gullahgourmet.com. I received it in a special purchase package and have used it instead of Old Bay since.
  5. Easily substitute imitation crabmeat for fresh crabmeat.

I thought it would be awhile before I came up with a new original recipe but here is one finally. It was everything that I expected and was a great beginning to a tasty New Years Eve Dinner party.  Welcome to a New Year 2015.  Click here for the recipe.

I must admit though this is tagged under vegetarian.  I am not I must admit.  This salad was a starter for a smoked ribs eye roast served medium rare then accompanied  with mushroom & almond sautéed green beans and  then parsley pan fried red potatoes.  Oh.. food is as much a passion for me as photography.  Maybe more.   I love inventing new recipes.  Most of mine include what I call as “drunkin” recipes.  This does not include any alcohol so you are safe.  It was exactly what I expected.  Please give it a try and do enjoy.
