Nutritional values

This wonderfully aromatic, light meal is rich in papains and vitamin C from the papaya and valuable lean protein from the lobster. 

If you can't find a whole lobster, use cooked shrimp instead. Additional iron and other nutrients are obtained by sprinkling 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds, dry roasted in a coated pan, over the lobster salad.
