Fish salad

Colourful, entertaining and above all irresistible, today our chef offers a fish salad: serve as a starter for a summer dinner, or transform it into a sumptuous and nutritious main course ... Get some fresh fish, fresh crisp vegetables and set to work immediately! We will provide a recipe, but you can vary it slightly depending on the availability of the best quality ingredients at the greengrocer’s or fishmonger’s. For example, if you can’t find a decent octopus, try some squid; or, if you want to give a bit of colour to your salad add both yellow and red peppers. If you wish to add character and flavour, you could mix in some capers to your seafood salad, or if you want to accentuate its Mediterranean character throw in some black olives and a few cherry tomatoes.

Cut the carrot into strips, slice the celery, cut the radicchio into quarters and then into small pieces, and finally chop the peppers fairly finely. Boil the octopus for 45 minutes in salted water, then cut into cubes. Clean and shell the prawns and steam for 5 minutes. Grill the fillet of perch, then cut into cubes. Mix all the ingredients when cooled and dress with salt, oil, pepper, lemon, the chopped parsley and a clove of crushed garlic. Here's a great appetizer for summer: cold seafood salad.

Prepare the dressing for this seafood salad separately, making an emulsion to pour over the fish. Simply combine salt, oil, pepper and lemon juice in a small bowl and lightly beat with a fork.
Fish is perfect for those who want tasty food which is also really healthy. It is rich in protein and unsaturated fats containing the famous Omega 3, invaluable for cardiovascular function, for the production of energy, for the control of cholesterol and much more besides. Unlike the protein found in meat, which is difficult to digest because of its connective tissue, fish protein is easy to digest. And fish promote growth and well-being, so are well-suited for children.
