Ingredients

  • 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 

Directions

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.
