Submitted by: Eddy Lobster Company
4 (1.5 pound) Eddy Maine lobsters
2 tablespoons saltine crackers, crushed
2 tablespoons fresh parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
Dash of paprika
1 tablespoon butter, melted
2 tablespoons white wine
5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
Parboil the Maine lobsters in salted water for 2 minutes.
Remove the tails and return the bodies and claws to the boiling water for another 10 to 13 minutes.
Make a lengthwise cut through the top of the tail shells and press open.
Place the tails on a roasting pan.
Combine the cracker crumbs, parmesan cheese, parsley, and paprika in a small bowl and stir in the melted butter.
In another bowl, combine the wine, lemon juice, and garlic and stir well.
Brush the tail meat with half the wine mixture.
Broil 5 1/2 inches from the heat for 9 minutes, basting with the wine mixture after 5 minutes.
Sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly over the tails and broil an additional 30 seconds.
