Lobster... you don't need to be a good chef to make a delicious meal with lobster because the taste of the lobster itself is superb! I never cook fresh lobster because I don't know how to handle the crawly creature. So I bought frozen cooked lobster for my convenience.

|Looks BIG, but this little guy only have about 2 tbsp of meat.|
With so little meat, the best way is to make sushi. I used this to make lobster salad before, but it's really too little and too costly for a side dish. However, ONE lobster can only make 1 small rolled sushi (cut into 6 mini sushi), just enough to feed my little boy. That's why I said, this is the most expensive sushi I had ever made! :) But....he likes it a lot and says 'Mommy, please make this sushi for me everyday!' ...ME: speechless...lol...
Ingredients: (Make 1 small rolled sushi)
