    Used different ingredients. This was very tasty with adaptations made to suit the ingredients I had on hand. I used filet mignon and fake crabmeat and low fat marg. Baked at same temp for about 25 min. We enjoyed this a lot.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Something else. I was able to make this recipe work for a dinner party by making the following changes: cook the loin in 220C degree oven for 25 minutes, then stuff the lobster in the last 5-7 minutes, doucing with lots of butter to keep the lobster moist and keep a close eye on it to make sure it is not over done. I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I also made a pan sauce of the drippings and the garlic butter to pour over the tenderloins. Garnished with lemon slices and served with roasted red potatoes and a spinach salad.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Recipe was great, maybe people should try to make the recipe the way it was written.  -  29 Sep 2008
