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

  1. 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.
