Have you heard that lobster is unhealthy because it is high in fat? Nothing could be farther from the truth if you skip the butter. At 129 calories per serving, lobster has fewer calories, saturated fat, and cholesterol than beef, chicken, or pork. Surprised?

    Spinach and cheese – this one will never get old! Do you think I can substitute salmon for lobster? Or any fish? Shrimp would probably come closest, right?

    1. I think I would break salmon up, if trying to substitute, but I have never tried it. Shrimp would certainly work! Thanks Marie!
