With a sharp knife, cut down outer edge of tail to remove shell. Remove meat; cut into chunks. Discard shell.

Sauté onion and apple in butter in a small skillet; stir in flour and salt. Add chicken broth; cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until sauce begins to thicken. Stir in whipping cream; cook until sauce is smooth and thickened. Add curry powder; stir well. Add reserved lobster; cook until lobster is thoroughly heated.
