2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

Cook corn in boiling water for 7 minutes, or until done. Remove to a plate and let cool. Cut kernels from cobs and place kernels in a large bowl. Bring water to a boil again and add zucchini, and cook for 2 minutes. Drain and add zucchini to the bowl with the corn, and toss in the diced tomato.

Whisk lemon juice, salt and pepper, and oil in a small bowl and set aside.

Cut shrimp in half, and chop lobster or surimi. Place seafood in a medium mixing bowl, and add half of the basil. Add 2 tablespoons of the dressing mixture to the seafood and toss well.

Add remaining basil and remaining dressing to the corn mixture in the large bowl, and toss well.

To serve: Place lettuce leaves on 4 plates or a platter. Top with corn mixture, then top that with seafood mixture.
