2 teaspoons minced garlic in oil

Place the lobster and seafood stocks in a saucepan and keep hot on low heat. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, adding butter to melt. Add the minced garlic and onion. Cook, stirring frequently, until onion has softened. Reduce heat to medium-low and add rice. Stir well to coat rice with butter mixture.
