Nice, the pictures alone are to die for..

Iron Chef Chen Kinichi would cook them by ladling the hot oil over the top of cut open lobster. Just for a minute or two. Cut open to expose the lobster flesh, if that's not clear.

If you're a wuss like me & don't like killing & cutting up a live lobster (usually done by plunging a large sharp strong knife directly down between the eyes) for recipes like this, it's perfectly okay to bring a large pot of water to a boil & dunk the little fellow in for about a minute or until all movement stops, remove him, run him under cold water for a couple of minutes & proceed with the recipe, shortening the lobster recipe cooking time slightly.

^LOL, I imagine that this is the less painful way to go.

Anyhow, that dish looks incredible.
