Lobster With Black Bean Sauce

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Gourmand

A fairly traditional take on the recipe, without having to dispatch a live lobster with a knife on your countertop. This is based on a recipe posted by Lee Phan I found on a cooking forum.

A dish to dream about! I doubled the sauce like I do for many Chinese recipes, to have extra for the rice or noodles. The oyster sauce gives this a great ocean flavor but the sauce is not overpowering, so the lobster stands out. Great recipe!
