2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons chili sauce
2 teaspoons rice wine
1 teaspoon soy sauce, light
1 teaspoon fish sauce
1 teaspoon chili and garlic paste
½ teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon monosodium glutamate
½ teaspoon sesame oil
½ teaspoon hot chili pepper oil
¼ cup and 1/2 teaspoon peanut oil
2 each lobsters
live, about 1 1/4 pounds, each cut into 8 serving pieces
1 x salt
2 tablespoons ginger
finely minced
½ cup scallions, spring or green onions
minced, about 4 thick scallions, white and green parts
3 tablespoons garlic
finely minced
3 each red chili peppers


Prepare the sauce: mix together the hoisin sauce, chili sauce, shao- hsing, soy sauce, fish sauce, chili paste with garlic, sugar, MSG (if desired), sesame oil, hot chili oil, and ½ teaspoon of the peanut oil.


Add the remaining ¼ cup of peanut oil to a large, very hot wok over very high heat and heat until the oil is smoking.

Salt the cut lobster pieces lightly and add them to the hot wok.

Sear the cut surfaces until the lobster is just about cooked, 3 to 4 minutes.

Remove the lobster pieces and place them on a platter (or, place them on paper towels to drain some of the oil.)

To the oil remaining in the wok, add the ginger, scallions, garlic, and dried chilies.

Stir-fry for 1 minute.

Add the lobster pieces, and toss to blend well.

Add the reserved sauce, and toss to blend well.

Turn the mixture out onto a platter and serve immediately.
