GRANDMA OLIVE'S RECIPES FOR TWO - SEA FOOD SALAD
I don't have a large garden here in Florida - just a real small one. There is just the two of us. of course we do share sometimes and give a dinner to someone who is sick, had a family death or just can't cook for them self for some reason. We don't have a farm so we don't eat as much as we did when we working all day and half the night. Also, sometimes, certain items, are less expensive to buy at the store than grow at home. So here are two recipes for one or two people.
SEA FOOD SALAD
1 cup flaked, cooked sea food (tuna, salmon, shrimp, crab meat, lobster)
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp finely minced onion
salt and paprika (to taste)
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup lettuce hearts in small pieces
If sea food is canned, drain off water or oil. Lightly mix ingredients in order except mayonnaise. Chill thoroughly. Just before serving, toss with mayonnaise to moisten. Serve on crisp lettuce.
NOTE: You may garnish with lemon wedges, hard-cooked egg lices, or shiny ripe olives. I also serve with corn muffins.
1 tbsp sugar
1/3 cup milk
3/4 cup Bisquick
1/4 cup corn meal
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all ingredients. Beat vigorously for 30 seconds. Fill well-greased muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 15 minutes. Makes 6 muffins
