DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare the lobsters for broiling and set aside.
  • After the lobsters have been prepared for broiling, slowly melt 1/2 lb. of butter taking care not to let the butter boil. The clear portion of the melted butter is the drawn butter.
  • Slowly pour the drawn butter into a measuring cup, measuring off 2/3 cups.
  • In a food processor, grind enough Ritz Crackers to make about 4 cups, (about 1/2 a box).
  • Combine the crushed Ritz Crackers with the drawn butter a little at a time until the crackers are liberally and evenly coated.
  • Fill the bottom of the lobster bodies and the lobster tails with about 1/2 the amount of cracker mixture.
  • Next, divide the seafood into equal parts and fill the lobster body.
  • Cover the lobster meat with the remaining crumbs and place the lobster on a sheet pan along with the claws.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Cook the lobsters for approximately 30-40 minutes or until the tail meat becomes white and firm to the touch.
  • Serve at once with lemon wedges and drawn butter.
