I just followed this recipe, and used freshly squeezed orange juice. It was DELICIOUS! The orange added a to-die for zing, much better than just garlic and butter. I may try adding garlic next time, but I'm a garlic fiend. Well done!

Cooked way too long. Lobsters ended up tough. Next time would take out after maybe ten minutes; definitely not fifteen.

This was the best lobster I have ever made. I did add a couple of tablespoons of finely chopped shallot and a minced clove of garlic to the butter before adding the OJ. Garnished with fresh parsley.

This recipe is so nom... Doubled the recipe and added 4 cloves of garlic right after the butter melted...

Very yum. I sauteed a little garlic in the butter for a few minutes. After the lobster was finished I cooked pasta in the leftover sauce. Added a glass of the wine I used in the sauce and some crusty bread and had an absolutely delightful meal. Thanks for the recipe.

made this for Valentine's Day. took the whole 15 min. the lobster itself didn't absorb much of the flavor, but we kept it on the stove after we pulled out the lobsters and it made for a great dipping sauce.

Do you have to cut the tops of the lobster like you do when they are broiled or grilled?

I also sauted minced garlic in butter before adding orange juice and wine and it was awesome
