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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil lobster for 15-18 minutes in salted water. Shell the lobster and cut into pieces.
  2. Add 1 tbsp oil to a wok and heat to high heat. Add in garlic, ginger, thai pepper and black beans and stir fry for 1 minute. Add in bell peppers, onions and scallions, stir fry for 2 minutes more.
  3. Add in chicken broth, oyster sauce, soy sauce, oil and cooking wine. Combine cornstarch and water together in a small bowl, then stir it inches.
  4. Add the lobster pieces and stir fry in sauce to heat through.
  5. Serve with steamed white rice or rice vermicelli.

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!
