Dublin Lawyer

From Cookipedia

Dublin lawyer is the rich Irish seafood dish utilising fresh lobster, cream, whiskey and sometimes mushrooms.

It dates back many hundreds of years to a time when lobster was more plentiful and less expensive than it is today.

The dish can be made with fresh or pre-cooked lobster meat. I have made successful facsimiles of this dish using prawns and crayfish tails.

Wish lobster was cheaper!


Glorious, but sooo expensive. Crayfish is a good and economical substitute.
