Balmain bug salad

Total time
20 minutes
2 servings

This salad is a specialty of Sydney. Contrary to what any may might think, balmain bugs are not insects. Balmain bugs are a type of slipper lobster, not a true lobster, but they have a taste and texture similar to the real one.

If you cannot find balmain bugs, which are usually sold in fish markets along Australian eastern coast, especially Sydney, any crustacean will be a boog substitute. Substitute balmain bugs with prawns, shrimp, crab or lobster - use 1 lobster, cooked and prepared for this recipe.
