Recipe: Perfect Mike's Saffron Lobster, Jumbo Scallops & Shrimp Vegetable Melody
Mike's Saffron Lobster, Jumbo Scallops & Shrimp Vegetable Melody. Lobster, shrimp, mussels, and snapper are simmered on top of saffron-scented rice in this Spanish classic. Added small scallops clams instead of snapper and there were lobster claws at my grocer so used them instead of the tail. The dish was full of seafood with not a grain leftover!

We had the jumbo Scallops, Top Sirloin, Portobello stuffed ravioli and for dessert Pineapple Upside Down Cake and the Flourless Chocolate Cake. everything was delicious. Restaurant is very nice decor, lots of tables, small bar area with tv's, seperate dining area, the servers were excellent, we had. Bring the mango sauce to a boil and pour a spoonful on each plate. Place the scallops on the sauce and top with the chives. Place water and saffron in small saucepan and bring to rolling boil.
