Seafood Salad

>
>
This  afternoon I went to my fishmonger with the intention to get a fresh trout or a small snapper for a light dinner of fish and salad. What I came away with instead were the following:
Caviar, snow crab legs, king crab legs, clams, mussels, shrimp and crayfish. A short trip to the grocer for some endive, iceberg, grissini and a lemon, then five minutes of preparation and BINGO ! – best meal of the month 🙂

P.S.
I got a bit carried away with the amount of pictures here, but this stuff is just too sexy and beautiful not to show off and drool over 🙂

P.P.S.
If you wonder why there is no “fru fru” on this dish – I believe these beauties need no embellishment other than them self.

This  beauty of a salad will conclude Week One of “Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food” meal plan. (There will be an initial 4 week plan)
For everybody not yet interested in a bit of a healthier lifestyle, I suggest you try this salad anyway. Healthier and lighter food in my case does certainly not mean tasteless and boring. 🙂  (As is the case with so many other lifestyle food suggestions out there) 😦
Now, I understand that sardines are not everybody’s favorite seafood, but as usual, feel free to replace them with the seafood of your preference, such as shrimp, lobster, sole, salmon, clams, mussels, scallops, crab meat, etc.

P.S.
So far I have lost 12 lbs in two weeks of “Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food” meal plan.
I feel much better, sleep much better and on top of all the benefits of living a bit more on the sensible side of life, I eat as much as I want. (Except on the two days of the week which allow me a dinner of anything I crave, although in much smaller portions).

” Seafood Salad “

.
.
“CANNED”  
seafood  you ask ? 

If it is not fresh it doesn’t hit my plate you say ?

Of course, I agree that fresh seafood is heaven on earth
when properly prepared, But sometimes in the real world
you come home late and want something tasty and don’t
feel like cooking. Here is what I did last night :
