Stuffed Baked Lobster Recipe


Make your next celebration even more special with a restaurant-quality baked stuffed lobster recipe that's delicious and easy to make. In under 10 minutes, Chef Halee Raff is going to teach you how to break down a lobster, stuff it, and bake it. You'll use ingredients such as parmesan cheese and panko bread crumbs to coat the top of your stuffing for a yummy, toasty result. The stuffing is made of the same parmesan cheese and panko bread crumbs but it also includes celery, garlic, parsley, onion, and one secret ingredient that might not be for everyone but it really takes your dish to a new level of flavor. If you're not a fan of lobster, Chef Halee also uses this stuffing recipe for chicken, pork chops, and even shrimp. Just follow the same instructions until it's time to crack the lobster.
