Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large skillet, combine the carrot, celery, onion and white wine. Bring to a boil. Add lobsters, cover, and cook until lobsters turn bright red, about 8 minutes. Remove lobsters from the sauce and allow to cool.

  • When the lobsters have cooled enough to handle, cut each one in half lengthwise. Remove the lobster meat from the shell and claws, keeping it and the shell intact. Discard the tomalley if desired. Slice each tail piece into 4 medallions and set aside.

  • Continue to simmer the wine and vegetables in the skillet until the liquid has been reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Return the shells to the sauce and stir in the brandy. Simmer for 5 minutes. Strain the stock through a sieve or mesh strainer into a saucepan. Stir in the heavy cream and cook over medium heat until thickened, about 10 minutes. Stir in the butter just until melted. Add the lobster meat to the sauce and cook over low heat until heated through.

I've been cooking lobster for 35 years. 8 minutes is not long enough to fully cook a lobster. The recipe sound wonderful but please cook the lobsters (1 1/2 lb) for 20 minutes. Read More

Loved this. It was really easy to make and had a great flavor. Will Definitely make this again. I made fried toast point with this but next time will add some kind of rice dish to soak up the delicious sauce. Thanks for posting. Read More

I used large lobster tails. I did add garlic. I added some small amount of flour/butter to the mixture because it never thickened up after 20 minutes. Otherwise followed recipe. Tasted pretty good. Read More
