Lobster Pasta Dishes

Two Italian-Style Lobster Pasta Dishes

One of the best things about lobster is that it is a very versatile food. There are several ways to prepare the meat itself, but you can also incorporate it into other dishes. Pasta is one such dish that works great with lobster. This article will give you two great lobster pasta dishes that will make your mouth water.

Lobster Pasta Dishes: Lobster Spaghetti

For this delicious dish, you will need the following ingredients:

- 1 ¼ pounds of lobster (preferably Maine)

- 2 ¼ tablespoons of butter

- 3 tablespoons of olive oil

- 4 sliced scallions

- ¼ teaspoon of red pepper flakes

- ½ pound of spaghetti

- 3 minced garlic cloves

- Diced onion

First, take your lobsters and steam them. Once you have steamed them (you will know they are steamed when their meat is white and opaque), take the meat out and cut it into large chunks. Grab a large pot and bring it to a boil (with a little salt added in for taste). You will then want to boil the spaghetti for nine to ten minutes. After this, put the garlic, butter, and oil to a saucepan and heat until the garlic is soft. (You can also do this in the microwave for a couple of minutes if you want.) Then, add the scallions, diced onion (just a little bit, although you can add as much as you want), red pepper flakes, and a pinch of salt and toss the mixture in the saucepan until the scallions are lightly browned. Then add the lobster, toss it again until the mixture is heated, and add to the spaghetti (which should be drained). Once it is tossed it is ready to eat.

Lobster Pasta Dishes: Lobster Fettuccine

This lobster dish may seem similar to the lobster spaghetti dish above, but it does actually bring a different taste to the table. (I recommend eating both: one one night and the other the next night!) You will need the following ingredients:

- 1 ½ pounds of lobster meat (steamed and shelled)

- 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

- ¼ cup of white wine (nothing too sweet)

- 1 teaspoon of chopped shallot

- 1 teaspoon of chopped garlic

- 1 teaspoon of brandy (or cooking sherry)

- 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley

- Red pepper flakes

- 2/3 cup of lobster broth

- 3 ounces of tomato paste

- 3 ounces of fresh tomatoes (pureed)

- Italian four cheese mix

- A dash of salt

- 1 teaspoon of heavy cream

- 3 teaspoons of butter

You will first need to take a saucepan and add to it the shallots, garlic, red pepper flakes, and olive oil. Saute this mixture for 2 to 3 minutes. Then, add the white wine and brandy (or cooking sherry), butter, cream, and salt and stir for 3-4 minutes. Now you should include the lobster broth and lobster meat and let this mixture cook for 5-6 minutes or so. While you are doing this, bring a pot of water to a rolling boil and boil the fettuccine for 8-10 minutes (or until al dente). Drain, and then add this to the mixture you were cooking, as well as the tomato paste and puree. Cook this together for 2 to 2 ½ minutes, toss in olive oil, include parsley, and serve this delicious dish.
