Baked Stuffed Lobster

The Capital Grille Recipe

1 (1 lb.) lobster, prepared
2 ounces clarified butter
6 bay scallops      
6 bay shrimp        
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt    
1/4 cup heavy cream    
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated        
2 teaspoons freshly chopped tarragon          
2 teaspoons freshly chopped parsley          
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs                    
2 tablespoons butter  

To make the stuffing: Using a large saute pan, warm the clarified butter over medium heat. Add the scallops and shrimp and cook for 2 minutes. Season with the salt and add the heavy cream. Simmer for 2 minutes and add the cheese. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Fold in the lobster claws, knuckles, fresh herbs.

To cook the lobster: Place the stuffing into the lobster (this will fill the cavity and cover the tail). When ready to serve, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Melt the butter in the microwave (30 seconds for most microwaves). Combine the melted butter with the bread crumbs and top the stuffing with the bread crumbs. Bake the lobster until the bread crumbs are golden brown (7 to 10 minutes).
