I excluded the lobster tails from this recipe because I do not like the taste of lobster but this dish was delicious, and fast to cook, definitely recommend!

I thought this was nice, but the shrimp kind of overwhelms the lobster.

I am of the opinion that to do anything with a lobster tail but broil it and serve it with nothing more than hot drawn butter is to insult it - until I tried this recipe. (Hubs requested something other than the usual broiled tail) As this recipe's first reviewer, to be most helpful to others I followed the recipe as closely as possible. But there was just too much "heat" for Hubs' sensitive innards so I used only 1/3 of the hot pepper sauce (I used Tabasco) called for. It was the perfect amount for both of us. I varied the cooking instructions just a tad - first, it was difficult to mix the lime juice with the butter and hot pepper sauce but melting it slightly took care of that issue. Also, since shrimp and lobster cooks (and can overcook!) so quickly, I cooked it first, then removed it from the pan before cooking the mushrooms - it didn't need that extra 5 minutes in the pan while the mushrooms cooked with the garlic and white wine. I returned the shrimp and lobster back to the pan once the mushrooms were cooked, then stirred in the butter/lime juice mixture. Upon serving I gave it a sprinkle of color with some chopped green onion. I couldn't get enough of this! The wine, garlic, lime juice and hot sauce contributed just "a little something" to take this dish beyond ordinary without camouflaging the sweet, tender, buttery, meaty taste of the Florida lobster tails and shrimp. An excellent dish, simply prepared with just a few quality ingredients, as most good dishes are.
