Seafood Tabbouli
100 mins (prep 10, cooking 90)
13 ingredients
4-8 servings
Adapted from Jane Brody's Good Seafood Book. She notes that you can substitute heated Spicy Hot V8 juice or commercial Bloody Mary mix for the boiling water mentioned in Step 1 (I haven't tried this); if you do this, omit the Tabasco sauce and anchovy paste. If desired, serve with wedges of whole wheat pita. I must admit that I've mixed the seafood into the tabbouli before chilling and thought it worked fine. I can attest that the leftovers keep at least a couple days in the fridge, though some liquid collects that needs to be drained off. Cooking (passive) time includes chilling as well as cooking. Eight servings as an hors d'oeuvre or 4 servings as a light meal. UPDATE: I agree with the first reviewer Juenessa that this is a bit bland, so now add 1 Tbsp of my Seasoning Mixture for Fish & Seafood. If you don't want to go to the bother of putting that together, you could try another seasoning that goes well with seafood, such as Old Bay. Also, you should of course also add salt if you prefer your meals saltier (I follow a rather low-salt diet and have become accustomed to its absence.)
