"What an outstanding recipe! Although my husband and I cut the recipe back a bit to prepare two lobster tails, we found the recipe easy to follow and thought it was the best tasting lobster we've ever had! We'll definitely make it again!"

"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."

"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."
