  • This is an excellent recipe that can be easily adapted for people in need of a soft diet. Simply partially puree using a wand type processeor. It will thicken slightly and provide a nourishing complete meal.

  • This is a wonderful recipe! In order to save cost a bit, I replaced the lobster with more shrimp. I used low-sodium Old Bay and added almost a tablespoon of salt substitute right before final simmer. The taste was quite grand...very filling, and a warm comfort food delight. Thank you! - 7/4/09
