Lobster and scallops with coconut rice is a unique recipe packed full of flavor. It is the type of dish I like to make on special occasions to celebrate something with my family. Who doesn’t like to celebrate with a meal like this?
Lobster is packed with lots of goodies — it is a rich source of copper as well as selenium and contains phosphorus, Vitamin B12, magnesium, Vitamin E, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids, which help decrease inflammation in your body. This lobster and scallops recipe takes a little bit of time, but it is not that difficult and well worth the effort.
