"The Seafood Chili has become an innovative and staple dish to our brand and concept here at Lobster Roll,” he says. “I've always felt like there was a void in the world of chili. After trial and error and many batches of chili, the Seafood Chili was created! It's well balanced, has the right amount of seafood for each spoonful, and is perfect for a chilly day here on the East End of Long Island."
Using a mix of beans, shrimp, sea scallops and of course lobster, this hearty meal warms chilly nights to the bone and adds some spice to a summertime soiree. Try this one on for size and bring a bite of the Hamptons to your own backyard.
