The only way this recipe could fail to provide a tasty lobster is if directions were not followed or lobster was bad in the first place.
Excellent. Even our learning-challenged cousin who unfortunately has a difficult time with some recipes...was able to accomplish this one on his own. Well done!
As for us, we love it. We've made it a half dozen times already. How SassyLacey in the previous one-star comment failed at this, is beyond me. If our cousin who has a learning disability can do it, I am a little shocked at Sassy's failure.
Some people just don't have a knack for cooking.
Made it with butter. Delicious!
I am so glad I tried this recipe even after reading the other review! I substituted butter for the olive oil & we LOVED it!! We will definitely be making this again!
Prepared these for dinner along with a steak. Followed the recipe exactly and they were awful. Glad we had steak to eat for the lobster were not fit to eat. Such a waste of money and time! Would never make these again.
