See below for an in-depth guide on many different and delicious ways to cook a lobster dinner.
1. Lobster Pasta
Are you feeling hot, hot, hot? If so, then you have to try this spicy lobster pasta for you and your family one night. It’s as easy as creating spaghetti, cooking lobster, and then mixing the two.
More importantly, it can be made with all-natural ingredients. You can even find organic pasta and pasta sauce if you so choose, but we’ll leave that up to you!
First, start by cooking your pasta noodles in boiling water, then drain them. Once drained, start up a skillet (medium or large, depending on how many people you’re feeding) on medium heat. Mix two tablespoons of olive oil and two tablespoons of butter (preferably unsalted) together.
After the butter has melted, add a cup of diced tomatoes, red pepper flakes, and shallot together until the tomatoes are soft, yet still a bit crunchy.
Add the lobster meat to the skillet with a 1/2 cup of water, as well as salt and pepper to taste. Spend two to three minutes tossing the lobster and sauce together constantly.
To serve, place the spaghetti noodles on a dish, then pour the lobster sauce on top. If you want a bit more zest, you can squeeze a lemon on top of it.
2. Lobster Rolls
Seriously, what’s better than lobster rolls? You have a succulent, juicy string of lobster meat slammed between crisp lettuce and a fluffy hot dog bun… life doesn’t get much better!
To do this recipe the right way, you have to start with the way you prepare your lobster. Fill a pot about two inches high with water, then have anywhere between one to three lobsters ready to be placed inside. Try to keep them around a pound if you can.
While the water is heating up, add a bay leaf, eight to ten black peppercorns, and a teaspoon of salt, then bring the water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, add the lobster and cook for 9 minutes, or until the shell is a vibrant red.
Get as much meat out of the claws and tail as possible, then place them on a large griddle on medium-high heat. Put a half tablespoon of butter on top of the meat for about 3 minutes.
Lastly, get a saucepan and melt a half stick of butter with a half teaspoon of sea salt. Take a pinch of paprika and pour it inside. Cook until the sauce is mixed together, then place the lobster meat inside and mix it all.
Your lobster is ready to serve! Open up those hot dog buns, place a nice piece of romaine lettuce inside, and then pour the lobster meat on top. Squeeze some lemon on top if you’d like!
