Moroccan Seafood and Broccoli Salad

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by echo echo

Modified version of a Jane Brody recipe. You can substitute sliced surimi sticks for the shrimp or scallops but, if you do so, do not add until salad has been dressed and tossed or the surimi will shred. Cooking (passive) time also includes chilling time.

This was outstanding! I used the optional currants and the pine nuts and would definitely recommend adding them. I also used the surimi (because I had it on hand) but would probably use shrimp the next time. I liked this warm and think it would make a great side dish--with or without the seafood. It was also great chilled and I think it would even taste great with shredded chicken. Next time I will cut my florets a little smaller (so I can more flavors in one bite). This was a very colorful dish with a lovely presentation. Thanks for posting echo echo
