    I usually make lobster pot pie, lobster rolls, lobster risotto, lobster bisque, lobster fried rice, and lobster salad.

    Any others?

    depending on the size and quantity of the pieces i.e. not too small, you can batter and deep fry them to make "lobster bites." 

    If I have leftover seafood, especially shellfish,  I always think "stock" or a "soup" of some kind.  Stock is one of those things where its always better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.  ;-)

    I already made some stock.  :)

    I decided to make lobster-spinach spanakopita, flavored with tarragon, bound with a little cream cheese.

    Lobster omelette sounds good to me.

    Leftover lobster is an oxymoron. ;) Send it to me. :)

    Some ideas for next time...

    Incorporate it into a buttery, garlic-y, lemon-y pasta/fettuccine dish with fresh herbs of choice.

    Ravioli with brown butter/sage sauce, mushroom/marsala sauce - or whatever you fancy.

    Seafood lasagna w bechamel.

    Seafood pot pie using puff pastry as a topper. Had the best crab pot pie in Yosemite.

    Po boys or sliders with fries on the side.

    Think Asian - Lobster in Lobster Sauce.

    Lobster souffle?

    Lobster crepes w side of asparagus.

    Lobster Fra Diavolo.
