Two Mouth-Watering Lobster Tails Recipes
If there is one dish that makes a dinner go from enjoyable to special, it is lobster. Millions of people all across the world consume the succulent food known as lobster, savoring a multitude of different dishes made with a variety of cooking methods that really gets the juices going. This is the reason why lobster tails recipes have become so common lately – lobster is delicious and everyone wants that restaurant-quality taste in their own kitchen. To help with that, there are two lobster tails recipes provided below that promise to give you delicious and savory lobster meals.
What You Need to know Before the Lobster Tails Recipes
Before we begin, let us review the cooking method we will use. The two recipes below both involve steaming your lobster. For this, you will need to have a steamer pot, or a large pot with a steamer insert that you can seal. If you do not have this, or do not want to steam it, then you may boil your lobster too. Just get a pot of salted water to a rolling boil and put the lobster tail in until the shell turns bright red. The lobster will taste great either way, so no worries. Also, if your lobster tails are frozen, ensure that you thoroughly thaw them in a refrigerator before using.
Lobster Tails Recipes #1: Tomato Basil Lobster
This lobster recipe is pretty standard, except for the little twist that the tomato basil sauce makes. Steam your lobster for approximately 15 minutes in salted water (1 tablespoon of salt per quart of water is good), and fluff the meat so it sticks out from the shell (which should be red). For the sauce, you will need the following ingredients:
¼ cup of olive oil
3-4 cloves of garlic, chopped (You can substitute parsley flakes if you want)
1 lb of plum tomatoes, diced
Basil leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon of oregano
Warm up the olive oil over medium heat, and put the chopped garlic in. You will want this to simmer for a few minutes. Turn up the heat a little to medium-high and put the diced tomatoes in the skillet. Let this sauce cook for 5 minutes. Then, add salt and let the sauce reduce. Once that happens (usually 12-15 minutes), add the chopped basil and salt. Toss in a teaspoon of oregano and cook for 2 minutes. While the sauce is still hot, pour over the lobster and enjoy.
Lobster Tails Recipes #2: Sesame and Curry Lobster
This recipe is short, simple, and easy to prepare. You will need the following:
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
2 minced cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of curry powder
¾ stick of butter (preferably the unsalted variety)
1 teaspoon of ground ginger
Minced shallot (you can substitute green onions if you wish)
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
Add the garlic and shallot to a pan with the sesame oil and ½ a stick of butter and sauté. Toss in your curry powder and your ground ginger and sauté again for a little over a minute. Let this sit for a few minutes to allow it to cool. When it is, you can add your lemon juice and some salt and stir. You want a thick and consistent butter of sorts. Then, just fry your lobster (out of the shell) in the frying pan. I recommend taking the rest of the butter and using that to fry your meat. When this is done, you can apply your curry mixture to your lobster for a great tasting meal.
