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.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day friends family and fans– I hope you are having a fantastic day fueled by plenty of Guinness Beer and Traditional Irish Masterpieces! As always we want to remind you to drink responsibly  while having your wonderful get-together or night out on the town. We LOVE you TOO much for you not to be careful!

Traditionally this is one of our families St. Patrick’s Day treats, one we savor and have fond memories of the spectacular meal for months.

To serve this wonderful recipe we usually serve it with Traditional Soda Bread and a beautiful green vegetable such as asparagus.

With that said, on to our lovely St. Patrick’s Day Recipe !

Dublin Lawyer -Lobster with Irish Whiskey Cream Sauce

  • 4-5 pounds Fresh lobster
  • 5 tablespoons of real butter Butter
  • 1/4 cup Irish whiskey
  • 6 ounces of Heavy Cream
  • Kosher Salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Fresh parsley, to garnish


  1. 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.
  2. Heat the butter until foaming and quickly sauté the lobster chunks in it  until just cooked but not colored .
  3. 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.
  4. Garnish with Parsley then place meat back into the half shells if desired or serve alongside Lobster claws for a more dramatic look .
  5. 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.


  1. 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.


  2. 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
