I have a lot of it. Give me your best recipe.

I usually make it grilled, or with pasta either as a dijonese or in a cream sauce.

 Add oil, salt, and pepper to wine mixture in pan; bring to a boil. Cook 14 minutes or until reduced to 1/2 cup. Discard thyme sprig. Stir in cream. Add lobster meat and pasta to sauce. Cook 1 minute or until sauce coats pasta, and toss. Sprinkle with parsley and thyme. Serve immediately.

 Lobster Roll

Lobster Roll

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb cooked lobster meat (from two 2-3 lb whole lobsters), cut into 1/2'' pieces
  • 1/4 cup celery, minced
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Dash of hot sauce
  • Pinch of cayenne - could probably leave this out for the babies
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 4 split-top hot dog rolls

Directions:

  1. Place the lobster meat, celery, mayonnaise, lemon juice, pepper, salt, hot sauce, and cayenne in a bowl and mix until well combined. Refrigerate until the buns are toasted.
  2. To toast the buns, preheat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Lightly spread the butter over both sides of each bun. Cook until golden brown, about 2—3 minutes. Turn the buns over and toast the other side. When the buns are ready, stuff each with about 3/4 cup of the lobster mixture.

I started out with a crab stuffed mushroom recipe that seemed similar and then changed it to what I feel is a pretty close version of what Red Lobster serves. You could also just use lobster.


Seafood Stuffed Mushrooms
1/4 cup melted butter1 pound fresh mushrooms, stems removed and set aside
1/4 cup minced red bell pepper
1/3 cup minced onion
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

6-8 oz fresh crabmeat

1 pound lobster tail, cleaned and chopped

Scampi Sauce
1 stick butter
1/2 cup Chablis
3-4 Tablespoons garlic powder.

Preheat the oven to 375. Brush a large baking sheet with about 1/4 cup of melted butter. Arrange mushroom caps in a single layer in several small baking dishes so they fit tight. Dice the stems and saute in 1/2 cup butter with red bell papper and onion. In a medium bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, sauteed mixture , shredded mozzarella cheese, crabmeat, and the lobster . Spoon into mushroom caps. Mix ingredients for Scampi sauce in small saucepan. cook 1-2 minutes or until butter is malted. Pour over top of mushrooms. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove and top with shredded white cheddar. replace in oven and bake for 5 minutes more.
Notes: You can eliminate the lobster and double the crabmeat, or use small chopped shrimp. You can also use canned crabmeat or surimi (Imitation crabmeat) to bring down the cost. (I gave a friend this recipe and she says she used the imitation and they like it) If you have stuffing leftover, you can freeze it and use it another time.

  This isn't a classic Alfredo, but it is a very good dish, and remarkably easy to make.

This may be varied by substituting cooked lobster meat for the crab, or by adding 36 cooked, peeled and deveined medium shrimp, and about a quarter of a cup of chopped cooked broccoli instead of the crab meat.

Crab Alfredo
4 tablespoons Butter or margarine
4 tablespoons Flour
2 cups Half-and-half (heavy cream If you REALLY feel wicked)
1/2 cup (or more to Taste) grated Parmesan Cheese
Salt and white pepper to Taste
Few grains cayenne pepper (optional)
6 (8 oz.) cooked snow crab meat, Cut into chunks

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in the flour, and cook briefly until the mixture looks sandy. Do NOT let it color. Wisk in the half-and-half, and stir until the mixture forms a thick sauce. Stir in the cheese, and season to taste. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors, and stir in the crab meat. Cook JUST until the crab is heated through. Serve over cooked linguini, with additional Parmesan cheese and hot red pepper flakes on the side.
