Stuffed Lobster Tail Over Linguine


  • 2 x 7 oz Lobster tails, thawed
  • 2 oz Good quality bread crumbs
  • ½ # (8 oz) Salted butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp Garlic, minced
  • Juice and zest of 2 lemons
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Fresh or dried tarragon
  • 1 tsp White pepper, ground
  • ½ tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 3 tbsp American parsley, chopped
  • 6 oz Linguini pasta, cooked


  1. Split the top of the spiny lobsters and gently lift the lobster meat out of the shell.
  2. Mix all the ingredients (except 1 tbsp of parsley, bread crumbs, and cooked linguini) in with the softened butter to make a compound butter. Mix well.
  3. Stuff half of the butter mixture inside the lobster shell and place the lobster meat on top of the butter mixture.
  4. Add bread crumbs to the remaining butter mixture and mix well.
  5. Place the bread crumb mixture on top of the lobster meat and bake in a 350-degree preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  6. Place the cooked lobster on top of cooked pasta and use the juices as the sauce for the dish.
  7. Top off with your favorite cheese of choice and garnish with the remaining chopped parsley.

Chef Tip – do not overcook the lobster. You can always increase the cooking time but cannot reverse the cooking process if over cooked.
