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

The recipe is courtesy of Mount Gay Rum and the brandy's Eclipse Heritage Blend is recommended. Any premium, aged rum should work fine as a substitute. 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. Try something like the Yaka Hula Dickey Dula or Boston Sidecar


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients. Preheat the oven to 300 F.

  2. In a large pot filled with boiling salted water, parboil the lobster until bright red.

  3. Transfer to a baking dish and bake in the oven with a little melted butter for about 15 minutes.

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

  5. Remove from heat, pour in the rum, and add butter. Stir until it is evenly melted and creamy.

  6. Add lime juice and chopped chives and parsley.

  7. Serve the rum butter sauce over the lobster or in dipping bowls. Garnish with tomato concassé, and enjoy.

Recipe Variation

  • This recipe works with lobster tails if you prefer those over whole lobsters.
