Seafood Oats Porridge with Lobster

This savoury dish is surprisingly addictive. The way that the fresh seafood flavours intermingle with each other creates such a pleasant taste. Furthermore the peppery kick of this dish makes it such a great breakfast dish. Using oats instead of rice to make this porridge also means that another serving of this delectable dish doesn’t hit too hard on the waistline, perfect for those who want to still treat themselves while on a diet.
