I can't remember where the original recipe came from, but I have worked on this for some time and it is so good. Simple, quick and yummy. You can substitute crawfish or shrimp for the lobster.

- 2 tablespoons minced shallots
- 2 tablespoons chopped green onions

- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 cup hot water
- 1 teaspoon lobster base (better than boulion)

- In a saute pan heat a little oil over med-high heat and saute shallots, onions, and garlic for one minute.
- Deglaze the pan with the white wine.
