Ingredients

2 (8-ounce) fresh or frozen lobster tails, thawed
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon peeled, minced gingerroot
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup clam juice
1/4 cup Chablis or other dry white wine
1/4 cup ruby port wine
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
Sliced green onions (optional)

Preparation

Cut lobster tails in half lengthwise, cutting through upper and lower hard shells with an electric knife. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat until butter melts. Add lobster tail halves, cut side down. Cook 4 minutes on each side or until lobster is done. Remove lobster from skillet, and keep warm.

Add gingerroot, curry powder, and garlic to skillet. Saute over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes. Add half-and-half and next 6 ingredients; stir well. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, 10 to 12 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 1/2 cup.

Spoon 1/4 cup curry mixture onto each individual serving plate. Place 2 lobster tail halves, cut side down, on each plate. Garnish with green onions, if desired.
