This sounds delicious, IC! Love the combo of lobster, mango and avacado. Can you tell me please, what is Ocean Salad? Did a search, but came up blank. TIA

Edited to add: Do you think I could add a dipping sauce of some sort?

Mish, you may have seen it served at a Japanese restaurant or you've seen it in the cold foods section of an Asian market. You can also buy it dehyrdated.

Regarding a dipping sauce, you mean in place of the Coulis right? You can buy or make ponzu sauce, add a little Mae Ploy brand Sweet Thai Chili Sauce to it, and that goes well with the rolls too.

Thank you, IC. Great pics, too. I will see if I can find it in the market, or try a taste first at a Japanese restaurant. I must admit I'm a bit of a pill when it comes to some Japanese foods/restaurants. I'm the one who usually just orders the California Roll and Teriyaki. If I subbed with cole slaw, you would probably think I'm loony But, I adore lobster and the combo with avacado, mango and mushrooms

We have the "Ocean Salad" where I work, but we either call it "Seaweed Salad" or the package name, which I believe is "Akame Gama". It's strips of seaweed, lightly brined and tossed with oil, possibly a blend of oils, and sesame seeds.
