This is from Southern's Living "30 Years of our Best Recipes" cookbook. If you want to serve an elegant dinner for 4 -- this would be a great choice. I did as the recipe suggested and made a tower of rice that was surrounded the lobster chunks and a pool of the rich lobster sauce. To make the rice "tower", pack the hot rice into a measuring cup and unmold it onto each plate.
