    Posting this recipe for the ZWT Australia which I found at All-Fish-Seafood-Recipes.com. Here is what was stated: "The Moreton Bay bug (Thenus orientalis), also known as the Bay lobster, is a species of slipper lobster found throughout the waters of Australia's north coast. If you don't have Moreton Bay bug you can use lobster, redclaw, or marron in this recipe."

      Made for the Newest Tag Game, I'm pretty sure that the lobster variety I used was not authentic for the recipe & falling snow made oven-broiling necessary. The mid-size tails I used were a gift from a friend who bought them at a local Farmers Market. I served them in gratin dishes at a dinner party as a starter course w/sml baguette rolls to "sop the sauce". I tasted the basting sauce prior to broiling & feared the lime flavor might be too intense, but when cooked & combined w/the lobster "juices" - it mellowed & was divine. DH & our guests were very impressed. My only regret is that I didn't manage to get a decent pic for the recipe, so you have an IOU for a pic. Thx for posting this great recipe for us. :-)
