    • Step 1: Mix crumbled Ritz crackers and oyster crackers 

    Firstly, put the Ritz cracker and oyster crackers into a zip bag. Use your hand to crunch them up. Take your crushed cracker in a bowl and mix them together.

    • Step 2: Add black pepper, and sherry to melted butter

    Put the pan on medium-high heat, then melt 4 tablespoon butter together with sherry and black pepper. Stir the mixture then set them aside.

    • Step 3: Combine the crackers and this mixture 

    Add the mixture above into the crunch cracker. If you want to make the dish more greasy, you can put half of the tamales inside which are removed from the head of the lobster.

    • Step 4: Make the sauce for lobster pie

    Continue cooking the lobster sauce by turning the heat on. Put the butter into the pan. Add garlic cloves to increase the smell of food. Also, pour a quarter cup of sherry to your melted butter and keep cooking for nearly 1 minute. 

    Also, cut a half of lemon then squeeze about two tablespoons of lemon juice into the pan. Go ahead with a quarter of a cup of lobster broth. Stir the mixture continuously and finally thicken the sauce by putting it to whipping egg yolks. But remember to separate the sauce into a little amount when putting in egg yolk, unless it will be curdled. Keep whisking sauce until you sniff the good smell. It is also the time ready for adding lobster in.

    • Step 5: Put the lobster in the casserole dish then pour the top with the cracker mixture

    Prepare one or two medium-size casserole dishes. Next, spray the oil in dishes (recommend using avocado oil). Pour the mixture in the dish and sprinkle crackers that we prepared previously as topping. At the same time, set up the oven at 350ºF to reheat for baking.

    • Step 6: Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350ºF with the remaining butter drizzled on top

    Transfer the dish to the oven and bake for around 10-15 minutes until the pie gets golden brown. 

    • Step 7: Serve with a lemon wedge and parsley as a garnish!

    When completing baking, deliver lobster pie on the table and use some slice of lemon, parsley put on the top. Enjoying this lobster pie with cornbread will create a perfect flavor. Serve the dishes hot and bring your original taste.
