There is no doubt that this is by far our favorite lobster recipe. The butter sauce is totally decadent. We often serve this recipe to guests as an appetizer with a rustic Italian bread or a crusty French bread (you have to have something to soak up the butter sauce!). This recipe can be easily doubled to serve 4 guests. The sauce can be made a day ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. See the directions.
We also make it as a complete meal for us, served on a bed of egg noodles or steamed rice.
Note: The sauce can be made a day in advance. Place in a sealed container or cover with plastic wrap.
*Note: Save the lobster tail shells for your shrimp or seafood stock.
