This is an incredibly easy dish to prepare and it makes for a very wonderful dinner for two. Use a dry champagne for best flavor. Serve with baked potatoes, string beans, and the rest of the champagne!

The champagne sauce brought the lobster to another level! I was nervous that we wouldn t like it so I had lemon and butter on the table just in case. The champagne sauce was gobbled up even being used to dip out steaks in!!! Definitely will be making this again!

I made this for the first time on Christmas Eve for something entirely different. I purchased a few pounds of lobster tails (7-8) 6-8 oz size which were about 5.99 a piece. I cooked with with an inexpensive brut champagne that I love. It was a big hit and extremely easy. The cook time for the tails was accurate as I left the meat in the shell as they cooked. I used half and half which makes a sauce which isn't as thick. I served them with crab cakes steamed broccoli and a salad.

This was delicious!! I made it last week for my husband's birthday and he loved it! Paired it with two filet mignon steaks made a little more sauce to also top the steaks and it was perfect. The only thing is that I find there was not enough liquid originally with the lobsters...that could have been my fault using the wrong size pan. I added a little more to compensate.

I made a “test lobster” because I’ve never made lobster before. It was delicious!! I can’t wait to serve it to my guests on New Year’s Eve. I cooked it in the shell. It is hard to make pretty once cooked. If I cook it after I butterfly it, will I have to adjust anything?
