From About.com's Home Cooking blog: "This delicious seafood dish is somewhere in between a souffle and a mousse. Elegant enough for any occasion, yet easy to make. You may make individual lobster puff servings by using single-serving ramekins. Reduce the cooking time accordingly. Try substituting crab or shrimp for the lobster for a less expensive dish."
