    I made this dish for a Valentine's dinner for family and friends. It got rave reviews from everyone. I followed the recipe but did have to bake them 15 minutes instead of the 12 minutes stated in the recipe. Also I wrapped them in foil instead of parchment. I accompanied the lobster with recipes from the CL site-Mixed Green Salad with Pears, Goat Cheese and Fig Vinaigrette and Double Chocolate Souffles with Warm Fudge Sauce. Additional sides included a shrimp cocktail with red sauce, rice and steamed asparagus. Champagne was the final touch. A magnificent feast and a recipe I will make again.

    We skipped the fennel and wrapped the lobster tails in foil. The flavor of orange and champagne was subtle, but so tasty!

    The oranges overpowered this dish. No one in the family really liked it. I've made better lobster recipes from cl.
