Great recipe! So easy and we really enjoyed the flavors and it went great with our lobster. I can't wait to try this recipe with other seafood! Thanks for a great recipe!

I have made this several times already. Great recipe and very easy!!! Great with shrimp and crab too!!

Nothing is better than butter except when you add garlic and lemon! Not a fan of the cilantro so I subbed with parsley. So good and thank you!

Made recipe exactly as written and it is WONDERFUL! Can't wait to try it again with crab legs or scallops!

This went great with crab. I omitted the cilantro.

omg, this was so delicious! especially with some garlic powder (as well as the minced garlic) on top of blue louisiana crabs!

We still like straight butter better, this was delicious on rice.


So easy and so delicious!!! Thank you
