We love lobster. This is one of our favorite ways to spread the goodness.

It is wonderful served in pastry shells, over toast, noodles or long grain rice.

Make sure you have lots of soft crusty bread to soak up the delicious sauce. This sauce works well with other kinds of shellfish, crab, shrimp, prawn or langastino.

If the sauce is too thick, add some liquid slowly to thin it out to your preference...
