    French Tart's Note:

    A decadant classic Irish recipe which is thought to be at least two centuries old; fresh lobster baked with cream and Irish whiskey - delectable! Though no one's absolutely sure where Dublin Lawyer got its name, locals still insist that it's probably because Dublin lawyers had a reputation for being rich and having a lot of whiskey in them! The dish remains simple, quick and easy to make, but delivers on the luxury and romantic meal front! Try this out for St Patrick's Day as a seafood alternative to the usual corned beef and cabbage stew.

      I made this as part of a seafood platter because of this I used little slipper lobster tails. This was superb I loved how easy the sauce was to make and what a lovely flavour it had . I have my own recipe for lobster thermidor but because of all the ingredients and how much time they take to make. I did not want that kind of work when making so many other dishes so I was really happy to find this one. I made as is except I had some tarragon I wanted to use up so added a tablespoon of that and I also topped with a little parmesan cheese before placing under the grill. This really is excellent and I will be making again and again!!! A wonderful post:) You made our seafood platter so much better French Tart as I was going to serve the lobster plain with some garlic butter, so glad I found this.
