Into a salad bowl, add the minced garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt, a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes, and a pinch of ground black pepper. Mash with a fork to form a paste. Add the lemon juice. Whisk the mixture until the ingredients are well blended. While whisking, slowly drizzle in the olive oil. Continue to whisk the dressing until it is smooth and thickened slightly. Taste and add more sea salt, black pepper, and/or crushed red pepper flakes, to taste.

Add the crab meat and the cooked shrimp. Toss the seafood gently until it is coated with the dressing. Add the parsley. Mix again.

Refrigerate the salad for at least an hour. Serve at room temperature.
