  1. I did not know can buy lobsters from Qoo10! I shd try bake+butter approach the next time….just that I think the butterfly -cut takes time and looks difficult leh….for me. Yours look perfect!

    Usually , I steam them with green onions and ginger, then save the lobster “juice” to cook porridge or noodles.

    • I was surprised to buy fresh seafood on Q10 too! It’s all right as they are a reputable wholesale supplier in SG. With sharp kitchen shears, it should not be too difficult to make the cut. I love steaming too! Shall try that out soon! :)

  2. wow..and again wow! This looks totally divine!

  3. A most luxurious dish, to be enjoyed in the comfort of home!

  4. I love following ypur website. Ur photos r well taken n u made cooking sounds manageable! I tried a few of ur receipess already mainly the chinese cuisines n 1 of ur risotto recipe. I would like to try baking soon. Need your advice on which oven model n type should i get? I dont host parties so most of the time i will cook for 3 to 6 pax. Waiting in earnest youe advice! :)

    • thank you! :) I am using a very old and simple Rowenta oven. So I’m afraid I can’t really recommend any oven since I only had one all these years. Personally, I don’t like those microwave-oven-all-in-one type. Do shop around and I hope you find an oven you like.

  5. Hi, may l know if this recipe can be replaced by using crayfish ( 虾婆)?
