I had a whole steamed lobster left over from Valentine's Day, so I used it in this quick, easy microwave recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot bring water to a boil.
  2. Add spaghetti and cook 9 minutes, until al dente.
  3. Separate the lobster tail and cut in half lengthwise, then into slices crosswise.
  4. Crack the claws and take out the meat.
  5. Add butter, garlic, and olive oil to a large microwave safe bowl and cook for 2 minutes until garlic softens.
  6. Add scallions, spices, and lobster and microwave an additional 1 1/2- 2 minutes until heated through.
  7. Drain spaghetti and add to bowl, toss and serve.

We loved this - it was delicious. Totally full of fat, but totally worth it occasionally!

Good and quick and easy!! Next time I'll get pre-split lobster tails only....didn't like cleaning the whole lobster, cracking claws etc.
