This is one of those dishes that my kids would never even taste because they didn't like the smell of the lobster. Now that they have tried it I have to share it! I usually just throw this together and never worry about measurements, but this is my best guess. Add or subtract to your liking.
- 2 cooked lobsters (I usually use 2 good sized fellas)
- 1⁄4 lb butter
- Ritz cracker, one sleeve
- garlic powder
- Break up cooked lobster meat.
- I like to have mine broken rather small, again, you be the judge.
- You can't really mess this recipe up.
- Lay the meat in the bottom of a glass pan, the lobster should cover the bottom of the pan.
- I have also made this in those individual little thingies you make onion soup in, this is nice if you are having company.
- Pour some melted butter on top of the lobster.
- Just enough to coat it a little.
- At this point is when I usually start to pick at the lobster, You know: One for the pan, one for me!
- TRY not to do this, it really is better if you have a nice amount of lobster at the bottom of the dish!
- Pour some Half& Half over the meat next.
- The milk should come just about half way up the meat, not cover it.
- Don't worry if you think you have poured too much, it will be okay.
- I did this once and looked like an idiot at the sink trying to pour out some milk while keeping the lobster in!
- It will all work out in the end, promise!
- Put in the oven at 350 for about 15 minutes.
- While this is cooking you can make the crust.
- Super easy.
- Just crush up the crackers, right in a frying pan.
- Use the back of a big spoon, as fine as you like em.
- I don't make mine super fine, just kinda crushed.
- Then add whats left of the stick of butter.
- You can add more if you think it is too dry.
- Throw in the garlic and parsley.
- Cook over low heat just to let the butter melt.
- Stir it all together so the crackers get nice and coated.
- Spread this evenly over the lobster.
- Push it down a bit so that it can absorb the liquid in the pie.
- Set back in the oven for about 5 minutes.
- Let it sit on the counter for a couple minutes, just to set up and cool a bit.
- And then enjoy!
- That was sure a lot of typing for such an easy recipe, but it is worth it.
- One of my favorie things to make and to eat!
Delish!!! This is my go to with scallops too! (Bet it would be great with any shellfish!)
I live in anchorage, Alaska, so getting Maine lobster is tricky and pricey. I did splurge, and bought a cooked lobster. I used this recipe, and man o man it was awesome! Easy, delicious, and a nice treat.
simple and delicious. i added fresh squeezed lemon and additional dipping butter. yum, yum, yum - this will be my staple whenever we splurge for lobster meat. thanks lynie!
