Serves 4 as a main-dish salad

Serve this seafood mix on a bed of watercress or butter lettuce, or as a sandwich in toasted brioche buns or on crusty bread.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add shrimp, scallops, and calamari. Cover, remove from heat, and let steep just until shrimp are pink on the outside and opaque but still moist-looking in center of thickest part (cut to test), about 3 minutes. Drain seafood and immerse in ice water until cold; drain again.

Step 2

Meanwhile, combine mayonnaise, lemon peel and juice, tarragon, mustard, and 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper in a food processor. Whirl until smooth.

Step 3

Combine seafood, watercress, capers, and dressing in a large bowl. Add more salt and pepper to taste. Gently stir in avocado.

So Good and so Easy! I think the recipe is good for 3. 4 if you include bread. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I made this for dinner tonight and it was so yummy! Fresh tarragon is so much better than the dry stuff and it really was a nice compliment to the rest of the salad. I made half a recipe for just me and my husband, but we loved it so much, I wish I would have made the full recipe!
