      Yield: 4 Servings
    1/2 lb Octopus
      3 lb Small to medium shrimp
    1/3 lb Crab meat
    1/3 lb Squid
           Cocktail Sauce (recipe
      1 sm Ripe tomato, chopped
      1    Serrano chile, seeded and

           Sliced into fine disks
      2 tb Minced cilantro
  Boil each type of seafood in salted water separately, until tender:
  Octopus: You may have to purchase a whole octopus. A large one (more
  than l pound) may require up to 2 hours; a smaller one may take only
  l 1/2 hours. Cut the thick portions of cooked octopus meat into
  1/2-inch rings, but leave the slender tips of the ten
  Shrimp The shrimp are done when they turn pink about 3 to 4 minutes.
  After cooking, cool and peel.
  Crab meat Fresh crabmeat requires about 3 minutes of cooking. Cool and
  remove meat from the shells.
  Squid: Cut the squid into 1/4-inch rings, removing the hard core from
  the head and separating the tentacles into 3 or 4 bunches. Boil only
  for about l0 minutes; overcooking will toughen meat.
  Prepare the sauce. Toss the prepared seafood with the vegetables and
  cilantro. Serve in old-fashioned ice-cream sundae glasses or in fluted
  goblets. If desired, you may garnish with slices of avocado. Makes
        4    servings.
  Cocktail Sauce: Mix together 1/2 cup ketchup, 1/2 cup fresh lime
  juice, 1/4 cup water and salt to taste.
