Nothing says I love you like a bright red lobster. My dh has been sick for awhile now, and I wanted to cheer him up, so I went to the store and picked up some lobsters. I cut the butter down some but other than that followed the instructions. I did add lemon to the dipping butter and it was delicious. Lobster was tender and rich with the seafood cracker stuffing. So lucky to be by the ocean where the lobsters are right off the boat. We just had the lobster with a little spinach salad. Hubby loved his special meal and so did I!

Lobster is eaten often here because we get such a good price off the boat. My dh picked up 4 lobsters for me to do something with so I went on search of a recipe to make. The stuffing for this was perfect for our lobsters. It has a rich buttery flavor mixed with the crab that is especially delicious with some lemon squirted on it after it's baked. I served it to our company from Florida and they said it was the best lobster dish they were delighted. We will agree it was extra special!

I made double the recipe to feed 4 and we devoured everything but the shell. The stuffing is amazing with the lobster! It is rich and buttery and so darn good. An extra special meal to serve when you want to enjoy lobster and impress too!

OMG this was so rich and delicious with a great blend of flavors from the crab and lemon in the stuffing with the rich buttery crackers. Mmmmmmmm mmm! We pigged out on this gem of a recipe for Valentines day and even though we can't buy lobster every day, but we will be having this every chance we get! I made coleslaw and baked potato to have on the side for a very special sweetheart meal!

This stuffed lobster is just like in the restaurants here in Maine. The simplicity in making this makes it an extra special recipe because it goes together in about 2 minutes and the flavor is like that of a high end restaurant. It is so much cheaper to make these at home rather than going out to eat. You can get three times as much for the same amount of money. For that, this is excellent to have on hand to use at a moments notice when you want a great baked stuffed lobster!
