Lobster w/ basil on scrambled eggs, sautéed corn & red onion, & toasted rosemary bread.
Always heard about or seen photos of lobster being paired w/ eggs, so when Lobster Tail went on sale, I decided to experiment w/ it. The recipe needs to be tweaked, and portion size needs to be adjusted, but overall i think this came out pretty well.
Lobster Tail (4 oz) - Broiled
1.) Preheat broiler. The oven rack should be at the mid-position (no higher otherwise you’ll have carbonized lobster).
2.) Use kitchen shears to cut open the top side of the lobster tail shell lengthwise.
3.) Pull the shell apart a bit to expose the flesh. Put the lobster tails on a baking pan.
4.) Coat w/ melted butter either w/ a brush (or spoon the butter over). Have enough butter to coat the lobster flesh entirely.
5.) Season the lobster (do whatever you feel is good). Safe bet is a pinch of salt, a little pepper, and a little paprika.
6.) Place the baking pan w/ the lobsters onto the middle rack and leave in there for 6-7 minutes (this is for 4 oz tails if you have larger tails you’ll need to leave it in for longer, but I don’t have the set times sorry…).
7.) Take out and once the lobster has cooled sufficiently, check the flesh; it should be opaque, firm, but not rubbery.
8.) Pull the Lobster off the shell (keep intact). You have a choice now. Either cut it into medallions or portion sizes, or leave it whole and find a piece of bread large enough to fit it. (I’d go w/ cutting it to make it into small portions)
Instead of putting something long and convoluted (like I did for the lobster ^ ) I’ll let Gordon Ramsay tell you what to do -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dU_B3QNu_Ks
Corn & Red Onion
1.) Obtain corn kernels (fresh off the cob if you can) and diced red onion.
2.) Saute the dice red onion w/ olive oil on medium high heat (till it starts to become translucent) and then add the corn. Salt and pepper to taste if you want. I may try it w/o the salt since the eggs and lobster already have salt.
Buy it pre-sliced (If you make your own rosemary bread from scratch along w/ this you’re either 1. super-legit 2. have way too much time on your hands. 3. are trying too hard).
1.) Toast it in a toaster oven or toaster.
(In order) Bread, scrambled eggs, corn & red onion, rough chopped fresh basil (I didn’t have any so I used dry), lobster, a squeeze of lemon on top.
