Ingredients

Directions

2 tablespoons butter
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 (12-ounce) lobster, meat removed and cut into medallions, shell reserved
1 bay leaf
Pinch dried thyme
1 tablespoon paprika
1/4 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried chili powder
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (recommended: Tabasco)
Salt
1/2-ounce brandy
 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
 
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and saute until tender. Add lobster and all seasonings except brandy and cook for about 3 minutes. Transfer lobster to a baking dish (or if you are using an oven-safe skillet, place it in the oven) and roast for about 8 minutes. Remove baking dish or skillet from heat, add brandy, and return to oven for 2 more minutes. To serve, return lobster mixture to the lobster shell, and arrange attractively.
