    Tweeky's Note:

    Need a hang-over cure? This cold, refreshing, vitamin-C rich starter is reputed in Nicaragua and in coastal towns of Mexico to do so. The Spanish name for this seafood salad is "vuelva a la vida", which means "return to life." Either way, it sounds yummy! Compliments of Food and Wine Magazine. It does need overnight marinating time.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and fill a large bowl with ice water. In another large bowl, whisk the lime, orange and tomato juices with the tomato paste. Season with salt, pepper and hot sauce.
    2. 2
      Cook the shrimp in the boiling water just until curled and pink, about 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the shrimp to the ice water. Return the pot of water to a boil and add the squid. Cook until firm but tender, about 30 seconds. Drain immediately and add to the ice water.
    3. 3
      When cool, drain the shrimp and squid and pat both dry. Add to the bowl with the juices and toss well to coat. Transfer mixture to a large resealable plastic bag. Close the bag, pressing out the air. Refrigerate overnight, turing the bag occasionally.
    4. 4
      Transfer the seafood salad to a bowl and stir in the tomatoes, avocados, scallions, onion, cilantro and parsley; season with salt, pepper and hot sauce. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours. Using a slotted spoon, scoop into martini glasses and serve with the plantain chips.
