Serves: 4



  • 1 lemon juiced

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 400g raw prawns shell on

  • 400g mussels

  • 400g squid rings

  • 1 garlic clove crushed

  • 1 tbsp flat-leaf parsley roughly chopped

  • 1 tbsp chives snipped

  • ¼ tsp chilli flakes or more to taste

  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

  • 1 red onion very thinly sliced

  • 1 bag baby herb leaves


  1. Make the dressing by mixing the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, parsley, chives, chilli flakes and salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and add the seafood – put the squid in last as it cooks the quickest – and simmer gently for 2 minutes or until just cooked through. Drain and discard any mussels that have not opened during cooking.
  3. Shell and peel the prawns.
  4. Place all the seafood in a bowl and pour the dressing over it.
  5. Chill for 30 minutes and add the red onion and baby herb leaves. Serve with lemon slices.
