Stuffed Lobster for Two
My husband and I love seafood, especially lobster. So I found a new way to prepare one of our favorites. It makes for a very special dinner. Enjoy!
- Serves: 2 persons
- 1(1 1/2) pound fresh lobster
- 1cup soft bread crumbs
- ½cup butter, softened
- 1teaspoon salt
- ½teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1teaspoon dried tarragon
- 2teaspoons vegetable oil
Step 1Bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil. Add the lobster and cook for 8 minutes. Remove from the water and set aside to cool slightly.
Step 2Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (220 degrees C). When the lobster is cool enough, split it in half lengthwise using a large chef's knife. Remove the dark strip if present. Remove the tomalley to a bowl and mix with the bread crumbs, butter, salt, pepper and tarragon. Stuff this mixture on top of the lobster meat still in the shell and place lobster halves in a baking dish. Drizzle oil over the top.
Step 3Bake in the preheated oven until the stuffing is browned, about 20 minutes.
