Baked Stuffed Lobster
Baked Stuffed Lobster Ingredients:
- 1 (1 to 1 1/5 pound) lobster
- Seafood Stuffing, see recipe below
- 1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 3 ounces chopped haddock
- 2 scallops, quartered
- 1 ounce lobster meat
- 1 cup Ritz crackers, crumbled
- Lemon juice, for seasoning
- White wine, for seasoning
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, for seasoning
Baked Stuffed Lobster Cooking Directions:
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Place a little water in a large pot and bring to a boil.
Cut open the lobster by inserting your knife just underneath the head and the cutting down, splitting the belly (body and tail). Remove the "inners" (heart, guts, etc., but not meat). Steam the lobster for 7 to 10 minutes and then remove from the pot.
Stuff the Seafood Stuffing (See Below) in the lobster's opening.
Place the stuffed lobster
, belly-side-up in a roasting pan. Add the lemon juice and a little water to the bottom of the pan to keep the lobster moist while cooking. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes, or just until the claws begin to split. Do not allow the lobster to dry out.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and then add all the seafood and saute until tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Mix in the crackers, and add lemon juice, wine, and salt and pepper, to taste.
