I just followed this recipe and used freshly squeezed orange juice. It was DELICIOUS! The orange added a to-die for zing much better than just garlic and butter. I may try adding garlic next time but I'm a garlic fiend. Well done! Read More

Well I must say that I used previously cooked lobster so getting the timing just right to warm up but not over cook the lobster didn't fair well. I did add garlic to the recipe which helped. The better half liked it but the lobster meat was just too tough (my fault). Even with that while the sauce was good it just didn't infuse into the lobster. Read More

This was the best lobster I have ever made. I did add a couple of tablespoons of finely chopped shallot and a minced clove of garlic to the butter before adding the OJ. Garnished with fresh parsley. Read More

Very yum. I sauteed a little garlic in the butter for a few minutes. After the lobster was finished I cooked pasta in the leftover sauce. Added a glass of the wine I used in the sauce and some crusty bread and had an absolutely delightful meal. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

made this for Valentine's Day. took the whole 15 min. the lobster itself didn't absorb much of the flavor but we kept it on the stove after we pulled out the lobsters and it made for a great dipping sauce. Read More

Do you have to cut the tops of the lobster like you do when they are broiled or grilled? Read More

This was really great. So often lobster cooking methods result in tough lobster. This was tender and succulent. To the sauce I had added two chopped garlic cloves and a spring of parsley. As another reviewer suggested I boiled down the cooking liquid and it was a nice dipping sauce. Read More
