Make the vegetables: In a bowl, season cucumbers and celery with fennel seed, red pepper, parsley, salt, and black pepper.


Make the salad: Bring 4 quarts salted water to a boil. Drop shrimp into water for approximately 4 minutes, until they’re just cooked. Remove with a slotted spoon and let cool on a baking sheet at room temperature, then transfer to a refrigerator. In the same boiling water, cook squid rings and tentacles for 1 minute.
