Good Evening! Today I only had time to whip up one dish for my weekly meal planning, but that’s okay. I have taco salad on deck, where I make the meat in the crock pot. And will do that when I get home Tuesday night. I’m on the road tomorrow and was on the road for 6 hours today. I swear I’m not actually a big rig driver, although my hip flexors would now qualify, being they are in the “sit” position a lot lately.
ANYHOW. Onto my recipe for the day. This was adapted from a recipe book I have at home:
Caribbean Seafood Salad
Mix the following together in a large bowl:
- 2 cans (12 oz) lump crab meat
- 1/2 pound cooked shrimp
- 1/4 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
- 1 cup diced mango
- 1/4 cup sliced scallions
- 1/2 small cumber diced
- Chopped cilantro
- Chopped mint
- Dressing: teaspoon olive oil, one lime squeezed, teaspoon honey (whisk in separate bowl)
- Pour the dressing on top and mix!
This is super refreshing and makes you feel like you are on vacation on an island somewhere. So maybe it’s not a Fall recipe, but I was tired of chicken. I wanted something I could make with seafood that could give me multiple servings this week. –this did the trick. Enjoy!
