  3. Cut and tear tomatoes to different sizes and shapes and place on the base of a platter followed by herbs and avocado.
  4. Heat griddle pan to a high heat.
  5. Drizzle olive oil over prepared seafood and toss through.
  6. Place seafood allowing gaps to avoid stewing on the griddle pan, thickest pieces first, most likely the prawns, followed by squid and then scallops. Cook for approximately 1-3minutes flipping once, or until just opaque.
  7. While warm, toss seafood through the chili and fish sauce before placing on top of your arranged salad. Leave some gaps so that every colour in the salad is visible.
  8. Garnish with reserved herb leaves as desired.

Notes

  1. Seafood can be barbecued outdoors if facilities allow.
  2. Firm white fish could be substituted for seafood listed, or all could be prawns if preferred.
