      This recipe is excellent. We needed a recipe to use up some left over lobster meat quickly. This recipe was very simple and fast. I made a couple of adjustments, though. We did not have rice wine on hand, so I used an equal quantity of golden balsamic vinegar. I also used Splenda instead of the sugar.

      Made this when we had 2 others for dinner & it served 4 very well, but then we also had other things on the table as well! Don't think I've ever fixed lobster at home (It has always been a restaurant thing for me!) but I had no problems at all with this recipe! Will do this again for sure ~ Thanks for sharing it with us1 [Made & reviewed in Newest Zaar tag}
