  • 2 fresh lobster tails, shell-on
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon dry white wine
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


Prepare Lobster Tails:

1-Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

2-Using kitchen shears, cut through the top of each lobster tail shell lengthwise. Carefully pull the lobster meat slightly out of the shell, keeping it attached at the end. Place the lobster tails on a baking sheet.

Bake Lobster Tails:Bake the lobster tails in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes or until the meat is opaque and cooked through. Remove from the oven and set aside.

Make Creamy Mustard Sauce:

1-In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped shallots and minced garlic, sautéing until softened.

2-Sprinkle flour over the shallot and garlic mixture, stirring continuously to form a roux.

3-Gradually whisk in the milk and heavy cream to create a smooth sauce. Cook for 3-5 minutes until the mixture thickens.

Add Flavorful Elements:Stir in the Dijon mustard and white wine, ensuring the flavors are well combined. Season with salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper if desired. Allow the sauce to simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes.

Combine Lobster and Sauce:Carefully place the baked lobster tails into the creamy mustard sauce, coating them thoroughly. Allow the lobster to simmer in the sauce for an additional 5 minutes to absorb the flavors.

Gratinate the Lobster:

1-Preheat the broiler in your oven.

2-Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the lobster tails in the skillet.

3-Place the skillet under the broiler for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly.

Serve and Garnish:

1-Remove the skillet from the oven, and transfer the lobster tails to serving plates.

2-Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and serve the Bahamas Lobster Thermidor immediately, accompanied by your favorite side dishes.

Enjoy this exquisite Bahamian-inspired Lobster Thermidor, where succulent lobster is elevated by the creamy and tangy flavors of the mustard sauce. Bon appétit!
