Easy and delicious. I did add worcestershire sauce, about a tsp. Also added some horseradish sauce about Tbl. then juice of one lime. Used croutons that I put in the food processor as I didn't have breadcrumbs but did have panko which I added to the breadcrumb mixture. Came out great. For the dipping sauce, I used mayo, honey mustard, wasabi, horseradish and fresh lime juice. The measurements are to you liking.

  2. Add in the onion, garlic, and carrots; saute and stir frequently for 3 minutes or until onions are soft.
  3. Add in the bell peppers and saute another 2 minutes.
  4. Add in the lobster meat and cook 1 minute or until heated through; Set aside to cool for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Transfer lobster mixture to a large mixing bowl.
  6. Add in eggs, mayonnaise, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste; stir to mix well.
  7. Add 1 cup of bread crumbs to lobster mixture; toss to mix.
  8. Add more breadcrumbs if needed so that mixture barely holds it shape.
  9. Take 1/4 cup lobster mixture and shape cakes by hand.
  10. Pour oil into a large nonstick skillet to 1/4 inch depth; heat over medium heat.
  11. When very hot, add lobster cakes.
  12. Cook for about 3 minutes per side (for a 1-inch thick cake) or until golden brown on both sides.
  13. Remove from skillet and drain on paper-towel lined plate.
  14. Serve warm with your favorite sauce--we like honey mustard sauce.
