Crab Stuffed Lobster

Ingredients

  • 2 shelled lobster tails
  • 1/2 stalk green celery
  • 1 scallion
  • 1 tbs unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 tbs all-purpose flour
  • 6 oz crabmeat
  • 2 tbs unseasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions

  1. First, prepare the crab filling.
  2. Finely dice the celery and the scallion, and melt the butter in a small pot.
  3. Saute the celery and scallion in the butter until soft, then season them with salt and pepper.
  4. Add in the flour and stir for about a minute, to cook out the flour taste.
  5. Slowly add in the milk, stirring the mixture constantly so it's nice and smooth.
  6. Remove the mixture from the pot, place it in a small bowl and add in the crabmeat and the breadcrumbs, and stir well.
  7. Set aside.
  8. Preheat your oven to 400 deg F, and lightly grease your baking pan.
  9. Take your lobster tails and cut them down the top, making sure you don't cut the whole way through (you are basically creating a pocket that will be stuffed with the crab mixture).
  10. Place the lobster tails on your baking sheet, and open up the part that you cut, and stuff it with as much of the crab mixture as you can, whatever doesn't fit inside can be left on top of the lobster.
  11. Bake for about 15 - 20 minutes, or until the lobster is done and the crab stuffing is golden.
