Dublin Lawyer -Lobster with Irish Whiskey Cream Sauce

Dublin Lawyer is a wonderfully rich and flavorful Lobster recipe that our family considers amazingly decadent Dublin Lawyer combines butter-sauteed lobster meat with Irish Whiskey and rich heavy cream. Traditionally Dublin Lawyer is placed back in the lobster tail– I prefer it out of the shell, and to use the claws as the dramatic center of attention. You can do yours either way you prefer.

  • 8 pounds Fresh lobster
  • 8 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1/4 cup Irish whiskey
  • 10 ounces Heavy cream
  • kosher salt, to own taste
  • white pepper, to own taste
  • fresh parsley, to garnish


  • The lobster should be cut in two down the center– then Remove all the meat from the lobster tail and part of the upper part of the claw (except for the lobster claws if you plan on using them as a dramatic placement on serving dish) If you do not wish to do so remove meat from Lobster claws as well. Then roughly dice the lobster meat.
  • Heat the butter until foaming and quickly sauté the lobster chunks in it until just cooked but not colored.
  • Warm the whiskey slightly, then pour it over the lobster and set fire to it. Add the cream, mix with the pan juices, then be sure to taste for seasoning.
  • Garnish with Parsley then place meat back into the half shells if desired or serve alongside Lobster claws for a more dramatic look.
  • Garnish with Parsley and serve hot.

      Hi, Megan, 4 to 5 lbs of lobster believe it or not is not very much. Unfortunately because most of a lobster is shell you will figure maybe 3 ppl max. How many will you be serving? The average serving per person should be figured at 1.5 pounds per person.

    Lobster, cream and whiskey on fire. I would love to see this dish presented that way. I’m thinking fine dining here. Drama? Oh yeah. Awesome lobster claws!

    Looks great. I truly and going to try this. Do you think I could do this without Irish Whiskey? I have regular Whiskey or a nice Sherry wine I could substitute bc I don’t keep much alcohol on hand. Thanks so much for all these delicious recipes you share.

    This looks great Heidy! I love how simple the ingredients list is as well. We don’t get the same lobster here in NZ as you guys, we get crayfish which are basically the same without the massive claws! I will try this recipe with crayfish =D
