Lobster De Jonghe
Red Lobster's Lobster De Jonghe Recipe
24 ounces cooked lobster meat
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons finely-sliced green onion
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Cut lobster into half inch pieces. Place lobster meat into a shallow baking dish or 6 individual casseroles.
Pour 1/2 cup melted butter over the lobster. In a small bowl, mix together bread crumbs, cheese, green onion, 1/4 cup melted butter and lemon juice. Spread bread crumb topping evenly over lobster meat.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees until topping is brown (about 25 minutes). Individual casseroles or shallow baking dishes will require the same amount of cooking time.
