Baked Stuffed Lobster

"A real treat! You can use any stuffing you like but I like this simple one the best. Also, you still need to open the claws when serving so don't forget the nutcrackers!"

Ready In:
2 lobster




  • Parboil lobster for 7 minues in salted water.
  • Remove and cool.
  • Place the lobster on its back and use a good size, firm knife.
  • Start at the lobsters mouth and quickly slice down the middle of the body and tail.
  • Use both hands to open the body and remove the stomach (located just behind the mouth parts) and the tomalley (the green liver type organ that will be very obvious).
  • Prepare a stuffing of your choice.
  • I like this simple one.
  • Fill the body and tail of your lobster with the stuffing mix.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Place the stuffed lobsters on a cookie sheet, and bake for 12-15 minutes or until stuffing is browned.

  1. OMG, did we have fun! A friend gave me 4 lobsters and did we have a great time! We made a stuffing of shrimp, scallops & tiny clams - it was :yummy:! I love to eat seafood because we all use our fingers and have a wonderful repast! I idn't have ritz crackers but I had saltines that were seasoned as well and it turned out lovely! Thanks for posting - Manami :)
  2. This recipe was excellent and very easy. I did change the stuffing by adding bay scallops with the shrimp. I loved it so much that I tell all our friends about it. Great Job.


Zaar...Wow, what a place! I'm one of the old timers of Zaar. I can't count the number of wonderful dishes I cooked in the past few years since joining. Along the way I have had the pleasure of meeting several Zaar chefs. Talk about your fruits and nuts! lol. I have enjoyed meeting them all. Family: What's to say...I have had the same sweet husband forever (Good thing....I'd hate to have to break a new one in...=) and live close to a couple of grown children. (Maybe you've met Smoke Alarm Jr. ..her brown rolls are sooo good!) Therefore, my family gets together often to enjoy each other's company and cooking. My greatest joy is six "little to tallerthanme" kids running around calling me Grammy. They wear me out! lol For the past thirty years I have been a Special Education teacher for grades 9-12 and love it. Took some time off last year to recovery from surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer. (Loved the radiation....I keep imagining that we are absolutely napalming the nasty cancer cells tohellandback to keep the little suckers from returning. =) My prognosis is good and now "I'm back in the saddle again". lol. Being a north country "gurl", I am happiest outside...walking, fishing, sitting in front of an outdoor fire or being on water (although in February it's a bit stiff....=0) When indoors I like to read, garden, knit, quilt and paint. During cold Maine weather I like to warm my feet on a very large ( 100 pounds of long legs and huge feet), sweet and furry golden retriever named Kerry (aka KTBRD: Kerry the big red . In the summer, the dawg and I round up the grandkids, hit the local dairy bar for a Mounds Sundae that is to die for!!!=0) . Then spend a lot of long and lazy summer days at camp . All in all...Boy, Life is good! =)
