  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (220 degrees C). When the lobster is cool enough, split it in half lengthwise using a large chef's knife. Remove the dark strip if present. Remove the tomalley to a bowl and mix with the bread crumbs, butter, salt, pepper and tarragon. Stuff this mixture on top of the lobster meat still in the shell and place lobster halves in a baking dish. Drizzle oil over the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the stuffing is browned, about 20 minutes.

Way too salty for our taste -- a pinch of salt would have been more appropriate than a teaspoonful! I used fresh tarragon the flavor was good other than the salt. Also with so much butter in the stuffing the oil is not needed. Okay but nothing memorable Read More
