    Excellent. Top with puff pastry and bake at 400 degrees until the top puffs up and browns. Serve immediately. Absolutely wonderful

    Great recipe! Much like I make it. For those concerned with the price/availability of lobster, this recipe works will with prawns and shrimp and even crab. Thanks for posting. You have my 5!

    This sounds wonderful but where do you get uncooked lobster meat? Most, if not all, N E states don't allow the sale of lobster tails because of the cruelty factor.
    Could I substitute cooked lobster meat?

    Lobster as a soup. Like the commercial "Soup is good food".
    This is over the top, I am sold.
