    Buttery cod is topped with plump lobster meat and beurre blanc, a sauce also known as “white butter”. This is considered a classic French sauce and is made by reducing vinegar and/or white wine with shallots and whisking in butter. It is decadent and rich.

    Beurre Blanc is a classic French sauce translated as "white butter". Decadent and rich, serve it over meats and pasta dishes.

    As far as fish goes, cod is relatively inexpensive and more importantly, easy to find. Simply a fish for fish and chips or a fish fry it is not.

    A thick, baked cod filet is flaky and fork-tender and not too strong in terms of flavor. (This is important if you are stuffing it with delicious lobster meat.)

    You can grill, broil or easily bake cod with a little bit of lemon, salt, and pepper and be in for a wonderful meal. But you know what really takes the cake? Lobster Stuffed Baked Cod.

    Make Lobster Stuffed Cod for your next special occasion. Buttery cod topped with lump lobster meat and buerre blanc sauce.

    Lobster does have a tendency to increase the grocery bill just a little, but you only need one lobster tail for 4 fillets of cod.

    And if lobster doesn’t float your boat, you can use langoustines, jumbo shrimp, or even lump crab meat with this same recipe. All are similarly sweet like the lobster and have a tender texture.

    And if cod isn’t your thing (and I can understand if that’s the case), talk to your fishmonger. They might have a local fish that is similar to cod in flavor and texture that would work well. If not, halibut, tilapia, or sole work equally well.

    The lobster meat is seasoned simply with salt and pepper and a touch of smoky paprika and mixed with the sour cream and bread crumbs to give it some structure.

    I originally saw a recipe similar to this one on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on a flight from Chicago to Baltimore. I can’t even remember where they were located or the name of the restaurant, but I am going to take a guess it was up in New England towards Boston or Maine.

    We served our Lobster Stuffed Baked Cod with Cheesy Twice Baked Potatoes and Burnt Carrots (don’t judge, they are excellent).
