This is my favorite way to make seafood salad. We have the bouncy shrimp, snappy squid, crunchy celery, juicy tomatoes. And, the dressing brings it all together! All you need is 15 minutes!

Seafood Salad Recipe

Serving: 2 to 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes

For the seafood salad:
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
½ pound squid
1/4 pound ground pork (or chicken)
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
½ small onion, thinly sliced
3 stalks Chinese celery, chopped
4 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

For the dressing:
3 tablespoons fish sauce
2 large limes
1 tablespoon palm sugar
1 medium finger hot pepper (or bird’s eye chili), minced
2 cloves garlic, minced

Seafood Salad Instructions

To make the dressing:
  • In a bowl, mix together the fish sauce, lime juice, and palm sugar. Whisk until dissolved. Then add the finger hot pepper and garlic. Mix well.
To cook the ingredients:
  • In a pot over high heat, bring water to a boil. Add the squid and shrimp, and cook for about 1 minute until completely cooked through. Remove and drain.
  • In the same pot over high heat, add the ground pork (or replace it with chicken) and fish sauce. Boil it until completely cooked for about 3 minutes. Remove and drain.
To toss the instant noodle salad:
  • In a mixing bowl, add the onion, grape tomatoes (or replace them with other types of tomatoes), squid, shrimp, ground pork, and the dressing. Toss it together. Lastly, add the Chinese celery and cilantro. Toss again.
  • Place it on a serving plate and enjoy!

The seafood salad has many dimensions of flavors and textures but all coexist together harmoniously. It’s like a happy family. Although everyone has different personalities, we are all complimentary of each other. Happy cooking and enjoy!
