    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 425°F If you have whole claws, remove the meat whole and reserve for garnishing. Cut the lobster meat into 1/2 inch dice and set aside.
    2. 2
      In a saucepan over medium heat, melt 4 tablespoons of butter. Add the green onions and sauté until the white part is translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in the diced lobster and sauté until heated through, about 3 minutes. Add the brandy, bring to a simmer, and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the thyme and salt and pepper to taste. Remove from the heat and set aside.
    3. 3
      In a frying pan over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add the mushrooms and sauté until golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice. Remove from heat and set aside.
    4. 4
      In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter. Stir in the flour to make a roux and cook, stirring constantly, for 2-3 minutes; do not let the mixture color. Gradually whisk in the stock. Cook, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Stir in the half-and-half and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes longer. Stir in the paprika, salt to taste, Tabasco sauce to taste, and the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice, or more to taste. Taste and adjust seasoning.
    5. 5
      Stir the lobster mixture and mushrooms into the white sauce. Spoon the lobster mixture into 4 individual gratin dishes. Sprinkle each with one-fourth of the Parmesan. Place the dishes on a baking sheet and bake until bubbling and lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Serve at once, garnished with the claw meat, if available.

      cooked this with a friend yesterday for a dinner party. probably one of the best homecooked meals i have ever had! everyone loved it, just served it on its own which was fine as it is very rich. might possibly scale back a little on the butter the next time that i cook this, as it was kind of swimming in it by the end, but that's not a complaint, you should know this isn't really health food! will definitely cook again, next special occasion, thanks for a great and easy to follow recipe

      This was absolutely delicious! I used leftover lobster tail and lg. shrimp cut in half. You could serve this to anyone who appreciates excellent seafood. It worked perfect just as it is.
