    This was the worst! I thought the recipe was wrong with that "ladleful of hot sauce". Taste like crap and I just wasted $83 on the tails! Waste of Time and money. All I wanted was some damn Lobster Newburg!

    Please note this MS recipe is far from the original, adding extra ingredients that in my opinion are unnecessary. Stick to Lobster, butter, cream, egg yokes, nutmeg and sherry/brandy. Simple is better with this dish.

    2 thumbs down. The sauce totally overpowered the delicate flavor of the lobster. It was okay, but for the price of lobster, I'll stick to recipes that highlight the lobster flavor, not cover it up.

    I actually tried this, and while in this vast number of detailed steps I have probably mis-stepped once or twice, I was able to bring this recipe to a photo finish with a devastatingly rich and decadent dinner that everyone raved about. You will have trouble getting up from the table after this one.
