...giant frozen lobster. As you do. And it's a giant COOKED frozen lobster, so I can't just cook it off and freeze some if there's too much. I have never eaten nor cooked lobster before and I'm a bit frightened of it - I'm not a huge fan of fish anyway.
And DH means well, he intends to do something with it, at some point. (He won't though, it will sit in the freezer, occassionally popping out to fall on my foot and willing me to clatter DH over the head with it instead).
So I was thinking - tagliatelle with creamy sauce and spinach or frozen peas? And whack the leftovers in a fish pie or quiche?
Has anybody else (or their spendthrift DH) bought a mad lobster in Lidl and found a cheap tasty recipe? Or just tell me how to cook it, because I have no clue...Thanks!
Could you defrost it, then strip the 'meat' off (you can use nutcrackers to crack open the claws etc) then use it in pasta as you suggested? It would prob also be nice in a stir fry, or with good mayonnaise and iceberg lettuce in a sandwich or baguette? <wants lobster now>
Oh I LOVE lobster - I have been known to cook them while camping in France. A creamy sauce with saffron would work well with pasta but in my opinion it is best served with salad and chips and lots of mayo for dipping. Yum.
defrost it and take all meat from shell (leaving claws and tail intact - and this is the only bits i like really)
I would cook some fresh (bought not made, lets not get silly lol) linguine or spagehetti, fry off some chopped tomatoes and garlic and some passata and then add chunks of lobster to warm and then mix with the cooked pasta.
Just google lobster recipes and there is loads so you can find something to suit your tastes.
I love lobster, but for some reason i have to be very careful as i have a few times had bad allergic reactions where i am literally covered head to toe in a blooted red rash (fingers tips, face everywhere!!!) luckily the rash has always occured a few hours later and i have been at home lol
