Preparation

To make salsa: Saute tomatillos and onions until brown in olive oil, about 1 minute. Transfer to food processor, adding remaining ingredients. Puree until smooth.

To make taquitos: Mix cheeses, garlic, cilantro, onion, bread crumbs and spices in mixing bowl. Transfer small batches into food processor and puree until smooth, transferring each batch into a second mixing bowl until all has been pureed. Add lobster meat and mix thoroughly.

Heat about 1/4 inch oil in a saute pan. One by one, dip tortillas into hot oil for one second, just to soften. Allow to cool, then add 1/4 cup lobster mixture.
