  • 250g cooked prawn
  • 50g cooked white crabmeat
  • 50g cooked octopus or squid – thinly sliced
  • 1 courgette
  • 1 carrot
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 red pepper – diced
  • 1 yellow pepper – diced
  • lettuce leaves – washed & dried


  • 2 cloves of garlic – crushed
  • 1 red chilli – finely chopped
  • 15ml apple cider vinegar
  • 15ml lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • fresh herbs – e.g. coriander, mint, parsley, chives – finely chopped


  1. Mix all the cooked seafood together in a large glass bowl.
  2. Make the dressing by mixing all the dressing ingredients together and whisk to combine. Pour dressing over seafood and keep covered in the fridge.
  3. Peel the courgette & carrot and grate coarsely. Mix well in a bowl and season with salt & pepper and squeeze a little lemon juice over.
  4. To serve lay the lettuce leaves on a plate and add the diced peppers, vegetables, seafood and then pour over dressing.

Tip: if using as a packed lunch, place everything in a container and keep the dressing in a separate container and add just before eating.  Try with other dressings e.g. Herby Tofu Dressing and Asian Dressing.
