Ingredients:  
2-4 steamed lobsters with reserved, strained stock
Sesame and canola/olive oil, according to taste
4-8 c. cooked rice of your choosing
1/4 c. scallions, snipped
1/4 c. fresh ginger, slivered
White cooking wine or sherry
Soy sauce (a tablespoon or so, according to taste)
2 T. cornstarch
Chinese hot chili sauce (optional)
Steamed vegetables

Directions:
Directions:
Steam lobsters in 2-3" of water for 15 minutes. In a separate pot, cook rice and set aside. Strain and reserve stock, and let lobsters cool. Cut up lobster bodies with a butcher knife and set aside. (Do not pick meat out of bodies. If preferred, you may want to remove the tomalley from the bodies before you add the pieces to the stirfry) Heat sesame and canola oil in a wok. Toss in scallions and ginger and stirfry lightly. Add sherry and soy sauce. Add lobster stock and lobster pieces. Cover lobster pieces with enough stock to cover and make a nice "stew". Add soy sauce to taste. Whisk cornstarch into one cup of stirfry liquid and return to wok. Simmer until the stirfry liquid thickens a bit and "bastes" the lobster pieces, about 3-5 minutes. Serve over rice with steamed vegetables of your choice on the side. For a spicier dish, add more ginger, some fresh diced garlic, or a bit of Chinese hot chili sauce. Make sure to have extra rice on hand to serve the next day with the sauce, even if the lobster meat is gone! :)

Personal Notes:
This is my original recipe after a few sessions in the kitchen. My goal was to try to duplicate a lobster dish that was served to us by a Chinese family who vacationed at our cottage. I was not able to aquire the recipe, but I think this is as close as I can get. I am very happy with the flavor and texture. If you like lobster and appreciate authentic Chinese food, you will love this dish! Happy eating! :)
