Preparation Time 30 minutes
Cooking Time 10 minutes
Ingredients (serves 6)
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped basil
Zest and juice of 2 lemons
4 blue swimmer crabs, halved, claws cracked
4 lobster tails or small whole lobsters, halved, cleaned
24 scampi, peeled (tails intact), deveined
32 green prawns, peeled (tails intact), deveined
350g clams (vongole)
12 scallops in the half shell
2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 ripe avocados, peeled, stoned, roughly chopped
1/2 cup thickened cream
1 garlic clove, chopped
Juice of 1 lime
200ml whole-egg mayonnaise
Grated zest and juice of
1 small lime
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 tbsp tomato sauce
Combine the oil, garlic, basil, lemon juice and zest in a bowl, then season. Brush the marinade over the seafood.
Heat a barbecue hotplate to medium-high. Cook the crab and lobster for 2 minutes, then add the scampi and cook for a further 2 minutes. Add the prawns and clams, and cook for 3-4 minutes, then add the scallops. When the clams open and the prawns and scallops are opaque, transfer all seafood to a platter. Serve with parsley, avocado and seafood sauces.
To make the avocado cream: Pulse ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
To make the seafood sauce: Whisk the ingredients together. Season with salt and pepper.
This seafood platter is not for the dainty. Make sure you have finger bowls spread over the table and plenty of napkins. Invest in a seafood cracker (it can double as a nut cracker) so you can get to every sweet and juicy morsel.
