In my never-ending quest to make lowfat meals, I used fat-free half and half, and fake lobster chunks (made from fish). Otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It was delicious! I'm sure using the "real" ingredients would make it even more special, but this was pretty darn good in my fat-free version. I served it over rice. It was very filling. We will eat this one many times again! thanks for a great recipe!
We're seafood lovers, so as soon as I saw this recipe, I knew we would love it! DELICIOUS!! I cut it to 3 servings, using 1 small lobster. I kept the seafood warm in a 200° oven while I finished the cooking. This is VERY easy and it's just wonderful! I served it over rice, with a salad and dinner rolls. The sauce on this is YUM!! Thanks Barbara, this one is surberb!
What a wonderful way to use seafood; made this last weekend and loved every bite. Did use about 1/2 cup sherry instead of the 1/4 cup, liked the flavor better and used 2 pinches of cayenne pepper, just to give it a small kick. The recipe says is serves 6, however, with this much seafood, it would easily serve 8 and probably 10.
