I've made this a couple of times and my friends really like it. Sometimes I substitute shrimp because it's easier and less expensive than lobster. I've also tried it with regular curry powder instead of the making the spice mix. Still good.

- 2 lobster tails, cooked*
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons Asian Blend
- 4 cups fish or chicken broth
