    I remember Emeril LaGasse did lobster boudin on his show about 10 years ago. I believe the binder (rice) helped fold it all together without the lobster getting rubbery. Anxious to see what you come up with.
  7. Wazzuqer,

    this got me thinking and i dug this up for you (provided from Food TV and Emerill Lagasse) he called it lobster boudan but note he used mud bugs. you could also probably use the langostino that i see at Costco all the time (steamed and flash frozen) but still full of flavor (apologies to those that can get it it fresh). another thought is the seasoning one would use for brats might overpower the mild flavor of the lobster, i'm sure someone out there would know for sure.

    good luck,


    Lobster Boudan
    • 1 pound crawfish tails
    • 1 pound peeled and deveined shrimp
    • 1/3 cup minced shallots
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 1/4 cup brandy
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
    • 3 cups cooked medium-grain rice
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
    • 1 1/2-inch diameter casings, about 4 feet in length
    • 1/4 teaspoon black peppercorns
    • 1 yellow onion, quartered
    • 4 lemon slices
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 4 tablespoons butter
    • Mustard Cream Sauce, recipe follows

    In a food processor, combine the crawfish, shrimp, shallots, cream, brandy, salt, cayenne, and pepper. Turn the mixture into a mixing bowl. Stir in the rice and parsley.

    Using the feeding tube on a mixer, stuff the seafood mixture into the casings to make 3-inch links. Bring a large saucepan of salted water up to a boil. Add the peppercorns, onion, lemon slices and bay leaf and cook for 2 minutes. Add the sausage and poach until firm to the touch and plump, about 5 minutes. Remove from the water and let cool. In a large saute pan, over medium heat, melt the butter. Pan-fry the sausage for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and keep warm.

    To serve, spoon the sauce in the center of each plate, and top with sausages. Serve immediately with Mustard Cream Sauce

    Mustard Cream Sauce:
    Combine the wine and shallots in a small heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until reduced to 1/3 cup, about 6 minutes. Whisk in the cream, mustard, salt, and cayenne. Boil until thickened by 50 percent, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in the tarragon, and adjust seasoning, to taste. Serve immediately.

    Yield: about 1 1/4 cups
