Just wanted to know if the lobster shell is a crucial part of the flavor or if it's an ingredient that can be left out? Want to know because I have the lobster meat, and juice, but not the shell.

Sorry if that seems like a ridiculous question but not a big lobster cooker. We get the little chicken lobsters on occasion but my man handles the boiling part. Can't stand the little squeal that can happen.

Aloha patticakes, No...the shell is not essential at all. It just adds a little bit of that briny flavor and it is def NOT essential. Truth be told, I usually just chop up a lobster tail or two and add it to the mashed spuds. I tried to do it step by step so it was clear, but instead it looks way more complicated that it needs to be :) BTW I am going to try this recipe with marscapone cheese to up the rich factor :) Hope it turns out good for u kid!
