Italian Seafood Salad for Feast of the Seven Fishes {Insalata di Mar}

 

 

This week we are showcasing some seriously scrumptious seafood recipes! I make seafood a lot in my house, usually of the broiled variety with some version of spices.  I had planned on making something of the sort with a bit more of a creative flare.  When I mentioned this to my husband he exclaimed that HE had the perfect recipe and would love to make his grandmother’s Italian seafood salad! Who am I to argue if someone else wants to do all the dirty work? “Have at it!” I said :) 

Italian seafood salad aka insalata di mare is a medley of octopus, squid, shrimp and scungilli marinated in olive oil and lemon juice overnight and traditionally served on Christmas Eve for the Feast of the Seven Fishes.

 Though our recreation of his grandmother’s recipe did not include scungilli (sea snail) since it is not readily available where we live, the rest of the ingredients are true to his grandmother’s original recipe and tasted exactly as he remembered growing up.Italian Seafood Salad for Feast of the Seven Fishes {Insalata di Mar}
