hCG Phase 2 Lobster Paella

Submitted by: HELLOJODY

Introduction

This is not a budget dish, nor easy to prepare but it is delicious. Gerard (the creator of this dish) hates any lobster base or broth that is commercially for sale. So he makes his own using most of the lobster body for broth and the meat for the dish. You'll get more bang for your lobster buck that way as well. Real paella has sausage and chicken as well as other fish and shellfish in it. This is another way to have a fulfilling meal while in phase 2 of the hCG Diet and not have to skimp on flavor.
