Ingredients

4 (1 1/4-pound) lobsters, cooked
2 cups crushed reduced-fat round buttery crackers (such as Ritz)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
3 tablespoons fresh Parmesan cheese
2 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Preheat broiler.

Remove the meat from the cooked lobster tail and claws; chop meat. Set lobster tail shells aside. Combine the lobster, crackers, and the next 5 ingredients (crackers through Worcestershire sauce) in a large bowl. Divide the lobster mixture evenly among tail shells. Broil the stuffed lobster tails 8 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with lemon wedges.
