This was very tasty, but the oregano/wine mix turned the lobster a very unappetizing gray color. I'm not sure how to fix this. Maybe the shrimp and lobster were holding too much water to begin with, maybe it would help to steam the lobster separately...? I didn't use the onions and only used 1/2 a Roma tomato, and I split half of the dish at the end and added some cream and parmesan. (it was good with or without the cream, but most of the sauce boils down during the simmer)
