  • When selecting the imitation crab meat, make sure to buy the highest quality possible for the best flavor.
  • Be sure to buy pre-cooked shrimp for this recipe, as it is important that the shrimp is already cooked and ready to add to the salad.

  • Substitute cooked salmon for the imitation crab meat. The benefit of this substitution is that salmon is a more nutrient-dense source of protein than imitation crab meat, providing essential fatty acids and vitamins that can help improve overall health.
  • Substitute Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise. The benefit of this substitution is that it is a healthier option with fewer calories and less fat than mayonnaise. It also adds a tangy flavor to the salad.

Taco Seafood Salad Replace the mayonnaise with 1/2 cup of salsa and add 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder. Serve the salad in taco shells or over a bed of lettuce.

Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan - Roasted asparagus is a great accompaniment to seafood salad, as it is light and adds a nice crunch. The addition of Parmesan adds a savory and nutty flavor that pairs well with the other ingredients in the salad.

: Grilled Shrimp Skewers with Lemon and Herbs - Grilled shrimp skewers are a great accompaniment to roasted asparagus with Parmesan. The combination of the smoky flavor of the shrimp, the tartness of the lemon, and the freshness of the herbs complements the savory and nutty flavor of the Parmesan and the crunch of the asparagus.
