Yes, it has excellent protein in it from the lobster. However if you are on a low calories diet you may want to use only half a cup of cream and swap the other half cup for seafood stock.
WHAT DOES LOBSTER BUTTER SAUCE TASTE LIKE
If you have ever been to Red Lobster and order a lobster tail with butter on the side. This sauce will remind you of just that with the addition of cream, garlic and cheese.
Honestly, two steaks could cost more than this recipe. Even though its Lobster this recipe does not have to break the bank.
I actually picked up two pre cooked frozen Lobsters for $10 a piece. So making this sauce costs around 20$ dollars and we all know adding pasta to it is not that expensive at all. Enjoy!
