UMMM! So very yummy, even leftovers the next day. I used 1 tsp of seasoning + a little extra. Next time I might add black olives or hard boiled eggs. Fed 8 perfectly! And I couldn't find fresh crab so I used 2 cans of crab.
My guests (as I) absolutely LOVED this dish!!! I used salad shrimp, canned crab, and rotini pasta. I only added a very small amount of cheese (I forgot)....all in all it was still GREAT! I'll add this to my favorites. I also went with other's recommendations and added more Old Bay (while cooking the crab and shrimp together with butter and garlic), and added the powdered Ranch packette. Scrumptious!
Great recipe!!! We loved it and will be making it again. The only change I'll make next time is slightly more lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Update, months later. I've made this recipe many, many times and it is now a family fave. I continue to add a little more lemon juice, and the salt and pepper, and in order to cut costs I sometimes add a little less seafood. Sometimes I change up the veggies I add too, depending on what I have on hand or what I forgot to buy. All in all this is a fabulous recipe. Thanks for sharing.
This was really good!! I used canned crab and shrimp (it works better with my budget), I omitted the celery but added some celery salt. I also didn't do the almonds...it sounded kinda leary to me. I increased the Old Bay, used 1/2 c. (each) sour cream, mayo & miracle whip. This was soooo yummy!! My husband said it was one of the best seafod salads he's eaten!! I'll defintely make this again!!
Very good! My family is weary of onions so I used a sweet vidalia and sauted it so they didn't stand out when mixed into the salad. I did not have celery and used celery salt. I also used half the amount of noodles and added a couple tablespoons of sour cream YUM!
This is killer!!! I did not have fresh crab so used canned, did have fresh shrimp (21's)and did not cut them up. The big chunks were perfect. I felt that it was a little bland so added crushed red peppers...oh about a teaspoon and some salt. Great salad.
Great salad!!! Made it for our quilting Christmas party. Doubled the receipe (works good) lined the plater with lettuce, garnished with parsley, lemons and limes (should have taken a picture; sorry I didn't, everyone commented on how appetizing it looked). Fabulous HIT. They LOVED it and so did our neighbors and friends. Most of the time people ask for the recipe, this time they came with their own paper and pen to write it down. After reading the reviews about the seasoning and mayo. I tried this and it seemed to work good. Stir fry your shrimp and crab(I used imitation crab) in butter and crushed garlic, then sprinkle Old Bay on the seafood mixture while it's warm. After the pasta has cooled, sprinkle with Old Bay and mix well.I prepared the dressing with equal amounts of sour cream and mayo, then added lemon juice, Old Bay, 4 tbsp milk, 2 tbsp vinegar and a couple of dashes of vinegar (total of 5 cups in all), but remember I doubled the recipe. The neighbors, the quilters, our friends loved your recipe. Thank you so very much for sharing. I will definately make this again; over and over. Both the men and ladies LOVED IT. p.s. I also added red pepper for color and some shredded cheddar. FABULOUS!!!! Thank you
Excellent seafood salad. This certainly gets added to my keeper recipes. I did end up adding a bit more Old Bay, otherwise followed the recipe. It's delicious as is or it's a great start to being creative. Can't go wrong.
This is a pretty tasty salad. I used 16 oz of seashell pasta - 8 oz just didn't seem like enough. Only other thing I increased was the dressing a bit and just by eye. I used 2 lbs of cooked salad shrimp because I hate canned seafood of any kind (except for tuna) and wasn't in the mood to spend $28.00/lb for lump crabmeat (for company I would splurge). Other than that used the called for measurements. Just beware of the Old Bay seasoning - I find it very salty so I added slowly and didn't even use salt while cooking my pasta. Really enjoyed this and first day it's not dry even with the added pasta. Might absorb the dressing by tomorrow but it's such an easy problem to fix...not sure why that complaint is even an issue. I will make this again.
I've used this recipe at several parties. A great hit everytime! Everyone asks for the recipe so I've passed it on. Absolutely Delicious! Two thumbs up!
