Seafood Salad with Crab and Shrimp


This is a great little summer dish that's quick to make and can serve a lot of people without a lot of food.  Even though the recipe calls for imitation crab meat, you can use real crab meat if you want a different taste.  You might also want to add some tuna to it if you want a more heartier salad.


1 lb shrimp, cooked, peeled and de-veined, 41-60 count

24 ounces imitation crabmeat

1⁄2 cup celery, finely chopped

1⁄4 cup onion, finely chopped

1 cup mayonnaise

1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper

1⁄8 teaspoon Accent seasoning (MSG)

1⁄4 teaspoon salt

1⁄4 teaspoon garlic salt

1⁄4 teaspoon old bay seasoning


Cut each shrimp into 2 or 3 pieces.

Chop crabmeat into pieces about the size of the shrimp pieces.

Mix all ingredeints together and chill for 4 hours to let the flavors blend.

It looks like a lot of mayo at first but after it's chilled it doesn't look like so much.
