Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 each Lobster, live, fresh about 3 pounds
4 tablespoons Butter
¼ cup Irish whiskey
½ cup Heavy cream
\N \N Salt and black pepper to taste
\N \N Cayenne pepper

Plunge the lobster into 5 quarts of boiling water, cover and boil for 10-15 minutes depending on size. Dismember, crack and remove the meat from the lobster. Reserve the shells. Cut the meat into bite sized pieces. Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Add the lobster and saute it over medium to high heat for 3 to 5 minutes until it is just cooked but no more. Reduce the heat, add the whiskey and stir in quickly. Slowly pour in the heavy cream, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Add the salt and pepper and the cayenne pepper. Cook until mixture begins to bubble (1 to 2 minutes). Spoon the lobster meat back into the shells and pour sauce over them.
