Interesting for a small group and a different flavour. Each seafood has an ideal cooking time and should be cooked individually, cooled, mixed with other ingredients, and refrigerated at least overnight turned every six to eight hours. Lots more garlic and lemon juice! - 29 Sep 2008


Used different ingredients. Changed this a bit. I skipped the olives and used diced red capsicums and diced celery instead to appeal to the masses. I also served it without the lettuces. It was a hit. - 29 Sep 2008
