I would like to avoid white wine (sherry is ok) and mustard. tia for any ideas.

I have two frozen Maine lobster tails I received from Lobstergram today.

  1. any version of a beurre blanc or rouge would be an easy solution.

    shallot, cognac, cream

    a maltaise (hollandaise with rind and juice of blood oranges)

    1. What's wrong with just the grill, browned butter and garlic?

          Maybe it's a Bechamel you're looking for? Or, Bearnaise. How about a roasted tomato cream with Marsala instead of sherry. - That's how my brother does it but, w/tiger shrimp.

            I've had it grilled and it was ok, but the best lobster I ever had came with a cream sauce (I don't know the name) and so that is what I am looking for.

        2. saffron goes great with lobster. i saute garlic, butter, a little cream and a few strands of saffron and reduce by 1/3 or 1/2. yum.
