  • 150 g shrimps cleaned
  • 250 g calamari cleaned
  • 100 g mussels cooked and shelled
  • 75 g octopus cooked
  • 500 ml water
  • juice of 1 orange
  • juice of half a lemon
  • a few sprigs of thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 150 g green beans cut into strips
  • 4 celery stalks sliced
  • 100 g cherry tomatoes halved
  • 2 tbsp basil chopped
  • 2 tbsp coriander chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 4 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 50 ml olive oil
  • 2 saucepans
  • 1 spoon
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 slotted spoon
  • 1 bowl for iced water

Step 2: Cook the calamari and shrimps

Pour 500ml of water into a saucepan. Add the orange juice, the lemon juice, the bay leaves, the thyme and season with salt. Heat it up and bring to the boil. Then put in the calamari and the shrimps and give them a quick stir.

Turn the heat off and remove from the hob but leave them to cook in the hot liquid for five minutes more. Then using a the slotted spoon, drain & transfer onto a tray.

Step 3: Blanch the beans

Add a little salt to a saucepan of boiling water. Then put in the beans and allow them to come back to the boil. Cook for one minute before transferring them into a bowl of iced water.

This stops the cooking process and keeps the vegetables nice and crisp. They can be drained after a few minutes, when the beans have cooled.

Step 4: Make the vinaigrette

Pour the lime juice into a small bowl. Add the garlic and the olive oil. Then mix it all together thoroughly.

Step 5: Assemble the salad

Place the green beans into a large bowl then add the tomatoes, the celery, the basil, the coriander, the parsley, the octopus, the mussels and the shrimps and calamari. Season with salt then pepper and add the pinch of cayenne.

Stir the vinaigrette, and spoon it over the salad. Then thoroughly combine it all together.

Step 6: Serve

Place the salad into a large bowl and it is now ready to serve. This tasty salad has both a Mediterranean and Asian flavour to it.
