Looking for a lobster recipe worthy of your next dinner party? These Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms take less than 20 minutes to whip up and are an easy but impressive recipe. Guests will love the meaty mushrooms stuffed with buttery lobster filling.
To make this lobster recipe a truly easy recipe, use precooked lobster. Many fish markets, and even some fish mongers in grocery stores, will steam your lobsters for you. Some even sell the meat already plucked from the shells (at a premium, natch). While it might cost you a little more, it will make creating this recipe a breeze.
And besides … who can say no to an amazing buttery lobster recipe?
