Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 325°F. Line cookie sheet with foil. In small bowl, stir together melted butter and garlic. Lightly brush melted butter mixture on all sides of each taco bowl to coat. Place taco bowls on cookie sheet. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until warm.
  2. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, stir together mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, celery, chives, lemon juice and salt. Add lobster meat, and fold in.
  3. To assemble, line inside of each taco bowl with half leaf of lettuce. Fill with 2 tablespoons lobster mixture. Top with chopped chives and lemon wedges. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • No chives? Try fresh tarragon leaves for a new flavor twist.
  • No more pots of boiling water--bake your lobster tails! Heat oven to 350°F. Cut lobster tails down the center of backs with kitchen scissors, leaving tail fin intact. Place tails on cookie sheet lined with foil. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted in center reads 140°F to 145°F. Remove lobsters from oven, and immediately submerge in large bowl filled with ice water. When cool enough to handle, remove meat from shell, and refrigerate until needed.
