Western.Chefs's picture
Ingredients
  Butter/Margarine 1 Tablespoon
  Regular long grain rice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Water 1 3⁄4 Cup (28 tbs)
  Bouillon cubes 2 (Or Envelopes, Chicken Flavor)
  Frozen rock lobster tails 24 Ounce, thawed (4 Pieces, 6 Ounce Each)
  Mushrooms 1⁄4 Pound, sliced
  Condensed cream of mushroom soup 10 3⁄4 Ounce (1 Can)
  Milk 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Dry sherry 2 Tablespoon
  Dried bread crumbs 2 Tablespoon
Directions

1. In 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, in 2 tablespoons hot butter or margarine, cook rice until golden, stirring frequently. Add water and bouillon; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Keep warm.
2. Meanwhile, preheat broiler if manufacturer directs. With kitchen shears, cut away thin underside shell of each lobster tail. Insert small skewer lengthwise through meat to prevent curling while broiling.
3. Place tails, shell side up, on rack in broiling pan. Broil 5 minutes; turn lobster tails and broil 6 minutes longer. Cool until easy to handle. Remove skewers. Remove meat from shells; reserve shells. Cut meat into 1/4-inch slices.
4. In 4-quart saucepan over medium heat, in 3 tablespoons hot butter or margarine, cook mushrooms until tender, stirring frequently. Stir in undiluted mushroom soup, milk, and sherry. Add lobster meat; cook just until heated, stirring occasionally.
5. Fill reserved lobster shells with lobster mixture. In small saucepan over low heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter or margarine; stir in bread crumbs until mixed. Sprinkle crumbs over lobster mixture. Place stuffed lobster tails on rack in broiling pan; broil until mixture is hot and bread crumbs are golden.
