NOTES : NOTE 1:   Any kind of left over fish or seafood or combination can be used (i.e. lobster, fish, shrimp, crab). This recipe also works good with left over chicken.


NOTE 2: Any firm vegetable can be used (i.e. green beans, cauliflower)


NOTE 3: I have tried this with sharp cheddar, Mexican Cheese mix and Colby. They all worked well.
