      This was excellent. I made it with scallops and 1 1/2-1 3/4 lb lobsters for my wife and her friend who was visiting from out-of-town (I made 1 1/2 recipes for 3 lobsters). We really liked the buttery, tarragon-infused stuffing, which can be sauteed and eaten if you have extra, as I did. My wife suggested that a bit of sherry might have been an interesting variation on the stuffing. I'd have to agree - I'd probably bring it to a boil before adding the butter to the pan. One other change: I don't particularly enjoy killing the lobsters with a knife, so I boiled/steamed them for four minutes before splitting and stuffing them.

      Perfect preparation method...made this for my husband's birthday dinner. I'd bought a huge shallot at the farmer's market so used that for the onion and used garlic instead of tarragon. This would be tough to do with a crowd, but for two-four people, it's the best way to prepare a lobster dinner.
