I'm a bit confused....

What Asian influences convinced you to mix cheese with seafood?

I was under the impression, based on research and word-of-mouth from folks who live in China and Japan that fermented dairy products (cheese et al) aren't even a part of the vast majority of Asian cuisine...

Hello, why are you confused? I live in America, Dallas Texas to be exact. Although cheese is not an acient chinese tradition, the way that the lobster is cut up and cooked is strictly asian. Cooking has changed in modern times and you will find the use of cheese, its not just not practical. Here in Texas, you will find this same cheese fried lobster in almost ALL authentic style chinese restraunts, which is a $35 plate for 1 lobster. This is the ONLY dish on the whole menu that use cheese. I guess you can say its westernized, but let me tell you something... it is very delicious.

Thank you very much. I really need to invest time and money into photography. I plan to build a recipe blog, but i cannot do that until I take presentable pictures.

I think your pics are very presentable. I know they may not have fancy backgrounds like a cookbook but to a cook or foodie they showcase the dish nicely. I'm sure I am not in the minority when I say I looked at those pics and thought "I gotta taste that."!

I was just confused about the whole cheese with lobster pairing and its assignment as asian-inspired.

Not criticizing the dish, it just threw me off - I was baking my brain trying to recall somewhere in Asia where they eat cheese at all, never mind with seafood. Heck, that pairing is pretty much strictly verboten anywhere but the US (and in some parts of France...) - but if it tastes good, do it, by all means!
