"Dublin Lawyer" is a lobster dish thats been served in Ireland for about 200 years. Legend says it got its name because Dublin lawyers were often rich, fat and drunk (lobster, cream, and whiskey).
1 pound lobster meat
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup Irish Whiskey
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Cut the lobster into 1" chunks. Melt the butter in a pan over low heat. Add the lobster chunks and sauté in the butter until the meat is barely cooked through. Take the pan off the heat and add the Irish Whiskey; carefully light it with a long grill lighter or kitchen match. When the flames subside, return the pan to the heat and add the whipping cream. Turn the heat up and bring the mixture to a boil; immediately turn the heat to low and add salt and pepper to taste. If you have saved lobster shells, divide the mixture among the shells; otherwise divide onto two serving plates. Serve immediately.
