Seafood Cocktail for Super Bowl Sunday!

I decided to throw a little party this Super Bowl Sunday. I have invited some friends and family over, and I intend to make a whole bunch of this stuff. I figure with all the delicious junk food we will have there, we should really have something healthy. This recipe is so quick and easy and makes a fantastic presentation. Hopefully this will go over as well as the pizza does!

Shrimp Recipe from Lobster Gram

  • 3/4 pound cooked large shrimp (peeled, deveined, tails removed), halved crosswise
  • 1/2 pound fresh Jonah crab meat, cartilage removed
  • 1/2 pound fresh lobster meat, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup finely diced carrot
  • 1/4 cup finely diced celery
  • 1 tablespoon drained tiny capers
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced red or green jalapeno pepper, ribs and seeds removed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/3 cup Eureka Lemon Olive Oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Recipe Directions
Place the shrimp, crab, lobster, carrot, celery and capers in a large bowl. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold together the ingredients, being careful not to break up the crab too much. Season with salt and pepper. Add the jalapeno pepper and parsley, then carefully fold in the olive oil and lemon juice, tasting as you go along. Adjust the seasonings and serve immediately, or chill for up to 6 hours. Divide seafood between 8 wine glasses for serving.
