This is not your average lobster in butter dish, no this is Caribbean Lobster with a Jerk-Rum Butter.

For even more flavor, beyond the spicy jerk seasoning and the sweet rum, this recipe also calls for onion, pepper, lime, chives and pepper.

For such a complex entree, an equally complex semi-dry, semi-sweet cocktail is needed. I would suggest Yaka Hula Dickey Dula, Boston Sidecar or Johnny Weissmuller Cocktail.


Steps to Make It

  1. Parboil the lobster until bright red, then bake in the over at 300 degrees F with a little melted butter for about 15 minutes.

  2. While the lobster bakes, sauté onion, jerk seasoning, and sweet pepper in remaining melted butter.

  3. Remove from heat, pour in the rum and add butter, stirring until it has melted evenly and creamily.

  4. Add lime juice and herbs.

  5. Serve over lobster or in dipping bowls on plate.
