I have lobster meat! I need some Hound-help!

Hey guys and gals-

I have 3 pounds of semi-cooked, newly thawed lobster meet (looks like mostly claws). My friend who's a chef gave it to me a while back, frozen. Well, it's not frozen any longer, and my wife and I want to devour it tonight (along with some melted butter). As such, i have questions (sorry, but I'm a real cooking-novice):

1) What's the best way to heat it? Steam it in a colander? Fry it in a pan w/butter (and then dip it again in melted butter?!)??

2) What should we accompany it with- white rice? Couscous? Other?

3) What wine should we drink with it?

4) Should we put garlic- or anything else- in the melted butter? Or just leave it plain?

5) Anything we're not thinking of?

Thanks everyone- as you can tell I'm no chef and my chef friend is busy at work so I'm not gonna bother him with these annoying questions- that's what you people are for!
