Seafood Pasta Salad



I have a really large family. So when I am asked to bring a side dish to a function, this is my go to recipe. It has that crab delight or fake crab meat in it. It is a lot less expensive than say a traditional seafood salad.

Have you seen the prices on shrimp, crab and scallops? That fake crab is a bit on the pricy side also, but nowhere near the real stuff.

It also has Old Bay in it and it gives it a distinct flavor. Every time I bring this to a function it really is the first to go.

You can also double or even triple this recipe if you need to. Either way, once you make this, it will be your go to pasta recipe like it is for me.

Seafood Pasta Salad


1 pound dry pasta twists

1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon sugar

1 cup mayonnaise

2 stalks celery chopped

1/2 cup chopped onion

2 tablespoons parsley for garnish


Cook pasta twists in salted boiling water until al dente, approximately 10 minutes. Drain well and rinse with cold water. In a large bowl combine Old Bay, red wine vinegar, sugar and mayonnaise. Fold in celery, onion, pasta and imitation crab meat. Mix well. Chill several hours. Garnish with parsley before serving.

Peace be with you,

    I just don’t cook with seafood. I guess b/c I did not grow up with it. This looks amazing, though.

    For instance, you can buy one now for your room and then the next
    pay day, you can buy another until your whole house is protected.
    The made-to-order treatments are also a little more expensive so try buying the ones that are ready in the stores.
