This pasta salad with seafood is a bit odd in several ways. First it's somewhat unusual in featuring shrimp, crab, and smoked salmon, then it's unusual in the oil and lemon juice dressing instead of mayonnaise, and third it features dill, which although common with fish it not common with pasta. I like using farfalle for the pasta, but rotelle, macaroni and even egg noodles will work.
