Delicious...I've only ever steamed or boiled lobster so this was a new method for me. My lobsters tails were a bit larger, about 9 ounces, and so they took longer to cook, but they took an extra 20 minutes! I served them with steamed rice and a spinach salad. My husband ate his as if it was tempura....he dipped his lobster bites into the sauce, dabbed on his rice and then ate his sauce-soaked rice in-between lobster bites. He said he prefers this way of cooking lobster so I'll be doing this again as I loved it as well. Thanks Chia...great recipe :)
