Lobster Porridge

A decadent dish that will definitely impress your family and friends during Chinese New Year. Heavenly brand of Fragrant Jasmine rice is perfect for this dish. It absorbs all the rich flavour from the lobster, giving it a light and fresh taste. The ultimate comfort food.
Live lobster is preferred as it imparts the fresh sweetness to the porridge. We used the shells to boil with the chicken broth, to heighten the lobster taste. Dried scallops gives a deeper level of seafood sweetness when it’s boiled with Heavenly Fragrant Rice. Do not overcook the lobster as the flesh will be dry and hard. If the rice is not cooked to your preferred doneness, but lobster is cooked, you can fish it out from the pot, and added in later before serving. Live mud crabs and flowers crabs are a good substitute to lobster.
