Putting it together:

  1. Soak noodles in water for 30 minutes.  While noodles are soaking prepare vegetables: Into thin strips slice the onion, shiitake mushrooms, snow peas, and carrot. Set aside.

  3. After 30 minutes remove noodles from water and set aside (add a tiny amount of oil to prevent them from sticking together). Set a oven (or toaster oven) on broil and season lobster tails with salt and black pepper. Broil the tails for 4 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.
