ISO healthy ideas for leftover lobster

looz | Jan 2, 201203:47 PM

This New Years Eve we celebrated by having a "Feast" at my home cooked by my sister's boyfriend who is a chef. One of the courses was lobster. We had two people cancel at the last minute, and ended up with two extra lobsters. (The only reason they weren't eaten was because there was so much other food. I never thought there could be such a thing as leftover lobster!)

Because I was hosting, I now have two whole lobsters plus the bodies of four more in my freezer. (Tail and claw shells didn't get saved.) My sister's boyfriend suggested I make a lobster bisque from them. This sounds delicious, but I did entirely too much feasting over the holidays, and I'm looking for something a little lighter to do with them. I also have absolutely no experience cooking with lobster, so any tips for how to prepare the bodies are welcome!

Thanks in advance!
