On our 2nd wedding anniversary 2 yrs ago, DH took me to a restaurant 1 hr outside of Reykjavik that specialized in lobster & a lovely view of the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean. We ate just 2 things - their lobster bisque & a pan filled w/sml lobster tails steamed in herbed garlic butter. BUT they served both w/assorted pesto & tapenade spreads to spread on baguette slices that were TDF wonderful. Since then I have been fascinated w/that genre & then I found these recipes in the *Almost Vegetarian* cookbook of the Australian Womens Weekly cookbook series. Since I now have lobster in my freezer, I wanted to preserve these recipes for spec occasions here at home. *Enjoy* !
