Light a hooded charcoal grill to 350 degrees.  Prepare the ingredients:

  • Chop the shallots or onion into small pieces
  • Chop up the 2 cloves of garlic and mince
  • chop up the parsley
  • Slice the scallops into ¼ chunks
  • If using shrimp, peel and slice the shrimp into ¼ chunks

Prepare the lobster:

  • Place the live lobster on a flat surface, stomach side down
  • Kill the lobster by pushing a large chef’s knife into the brain
  • Remove elastics from claws
  • Using the knife, split the lobster all the way down the middle
  • Remove the intestinal sac, brain, tomalley and roe with fingers or paper towel — do not use water to rinse the lobster as this will remove the juices
  • Optionally you may save the roe and tomalley and add it to the stuffing
  • Crack the claws with the handle of the knife

Make sure you start with ocean fresh lobster from Maine.  Order for home delivery from your favorite online lobster delivery service.  Then gather up the following ingredients.

Let’s Get Ready:

  • 4 1 ½ lb Live Maine lobsters
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts
  • 1/3 cup finely diced dried apricots
  • 10 oz. brioche, cut into ¾” cubes
  • 1 ½ cups diced celery, diced onion, diced fennel
  • Dash dried red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 16 sprigs rosemary

Let’s Start Cooking: 

In a large (16-quart) cook pot, bring 3 cups of water to a roiling boil. Place lobsters one at a time head first into the pot and cover tightly with lid. Cook for seven (7) minutes, making sure to stir the lobster once or twice. Remove the lobsters and set aside and let cool.  Save the liquid in the pot.  Once cool, use a large chef knife to open the claws and remove the meat. Set meat aside and discard the shells. Twist the body from the tail and slice open the body and remove the insides leaving just the outer shell.  Remove the legs from the body shell. Save the shell. Use chef’s scissors to cut the outer edges of the underside of the tail and remove the meat. Discard the cut tail shell piece and save the tail shell. Clean the lobster meat over a bowl to save the juices.  Strain 3 cups of the liquid from the pot into the bowl.  Dice all the lobster meat except for four of the claws.  Leave  4 of the 8 claws whole.

Prepare the stuffing

Bring oven to 350 degrees and toast the brioche until golden brown, about seven to 10 minutes. In a large sauté pan melt the butter over medium heat. Add the pine nuts and apricots and cook, stirring frequently. Cook until apricots have darkened and the pine nuts have toasted to deep brown.  Add in the onion, celery and fennel and stir. Cook for three to five minutes until the celery begins to soften.  Add the red pepper flake, fresh ground pepper, parsley and a pinch of salt.  Add the toasted brioche and toss the mixture.  Add three cups of the reserved liquid and combine with mixture.  Cook over low heat until the bread has absorbed the liquid, about three to five minutes.  Add the diced lobster meat to the mixture and toss to combine.  Keep the stuffing warm.

Position the Lobster Shells

Next position the lobster tail shells and body shells on a sheet tray.  Fill each shell with a generous portion of the warm stuffing.  Place the rosemary aside each shell.  Pre-heat broiler to medium-high and cook for seven to 10 minutes until golden brown.  Then add the four claws, one atop each lobster, and cook one more minute.  Serve immediately.
