It was a hit...Everyone loved it!! I had to write the recipe down for a few people!! The best part of all it was easy and all in one pan!!! Try it and let me know if you like it!!

I wanted to taste the combination of garlic, wine and butter before committing beautiful lobster. It was delicious! I used a 2011 Procrastinate Pinot Grigio as my white wine and actually drank some while simmering the sauce. I'm not big on wine typically but I drank this. Your sauce will be served with my lobster. Thanks for something so tasty and easy.

  1. First you will need a sauce pan that has a steamer basket. If your lobster tails are frozen thaw them out. Cut the top of the lobster tail enough to allow expansion of the meat. In the sauce pan - on a medium low heat mix together the garlic, butter and white wine stirring occasionally. Once the butter wine mix comes to a boil, place the steam basket and cover. Let the Lobster tails steam for 8 minutes. They will turn bright red. Set aside. Using a strainer, pour the butter wine mixture into serving cups. Use the butter wine mixture to dip the lobster tails inches I hope you enjoy it!
