For the last 6 years, I have made this for my husband for Valentine's Day in lieu of dining out, fighting for reservations and spending too much. It's become something of a tradition and we look forward to an evening alone every year. Don't change a THING about this recipe- everyone is always surprised when I mention roasting the tails, but the oil keeps them moist and tender (Except maybe doubling the sauce recipe- I do since we like it so much, plus you can reuse the leftovers). I highly recommend the side of Snow Peas and Cherry Tomatoes and a good white wine. I have made the greens with Tarragon Vinaigrette and Pine Nuts as well and find it a perfect light romantic meal! Next year I'll add the artichoke red pepper dip.
Turned out great! The sauce has a great flavor, will definitely use it for other dishes!
Ehh, it's not that it's bad, but more so that it's sort've unbalanced in regards to the dominance of the sesame oil and it overpowers the natural flavor of the lobster.
Made this for Valentine's Day dinner along with steak and mashed potatoes and it was delicious! I substituted strawberry jelly (melted in the microwave for a few seconds) for the plum sauce and still turned out well.
These were outstanding on the grill! Used cream sherry instead of dry sherry in the sauce.
I made this recipe last night and, like many (all?) of the other reviewers, I loved it! I made it EXACTLY like the recipe and it tasted amazing and, as an added bonus, it was very easy to make. I do not think anything needs to be changed and it was perfect when made as written. If you haven't made it: Make it- you'll be glad you did.
This was also my first try @ Lobster Tails. What an EASY & EXCELLENT recipe!! I followed recipe exactly but did add a little Wasbi as others suggested. We thought the sauce was great w/ lobster tails, BUT did feel a little too much soy sauce for our tastes. I will cut back on it next time. If you like a little spicier like us, I plan to also use Thai Chili Sauce in place of Plum Sauce. It is both sweet & spicy. Valentine & Anniversary Dinner so also had small Rib Eye w/ Arugula Salad & Baked Potato. FABULOUS meal and SO EASY!!!!
This sauce is amazing. I made the entire recipe exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing - except doubling the sauce! I think it would work great with chicken as well.
