Love It Lobster

7 Mar

unnamed

Shaws supermarket had a great sale today on lobster.

I had to get some.

What could be better eating lobster when someone else takes it out of the shell?

I bought a pound of lobster meat for $16.99. What a deal.

I just wanted to enjoy the lobster without mayo or a lot of bread.

1/2 pound of lobster meat

1  pat of butter

Ten to twelve homemade garlic croutons

Put everything together in a microwave safe bowl and heat for one minute or until the butter has melted.

This is so good.

I am saving the other 1/2  pound  of lobster for tomorrow.

I’m so excited I can hardly wait.

Lobster Sauce

This is a sauce that I crave and I am not pregnant.

My Uncle Mario used to get Chinese takeout and share it with me when I was a little girl.

He was one of my favorite Uncles and this was his favorite meal.

1 1/3 pounds of ground pork

3 tablespoons vegetable oil or peanut oil

4 large minced garlic cloves

1 rounded teaspoon grated ginger

2 tablespoons rice wine or cooking sherry

2 cups low sodium chicken broth

2 teaspoons sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

One cup frozen peas

3 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 3 tablespoons water

One beaten egg

4 chopped scallions

Heat the 3 tablespoons of oil and add the ground pork.

Stir fry and break up the pork into small pieces.

Add the garlic, ginger, wine, chicken stock, sesame oil. sugar, salt and pepper.

Stir fry till the garlic and pork is cooked

Add the frozen peas and cook for another minute

Stir in the cornstarch mixture and cook on high until the sauce starts to thicken.

Add the egg and stir it into the mixture for one minute.

Adjust your salt now. If you want you can use soy sauce but your sauce will get dark.

Top with the scallions

I serve this over udon noodles but rice is also great.

It is delicious to add 1/2 pound of large shrimp while it is cooking.

If you really want to be indulgent add 1/2 pound of lobster meat just to justify the name of the meal.

Lobster Salad Sandwich

22 Feb

Whenever I have to go to the doctors I treat myself afterwards.

Sometimes its ice cream, sometimes its a pastry but today it was lobster salad.

The meat of one boiled lobster.

Now this is my trick.

When the lobsters are on sale I have the store boil them

I take them home and get all the meat out of the shell.

Put the meat of one lobster in each freezer bag and they can stay for at least a couple of months in the freezer.

I usually double bag .

Let it sit out for a couple of hours in the refrigerator to defrost

Chop to the size you like

Add a good squeeze of lemon

One tablespoon mayonaise

One diced scallion

Salt and black pepper

Mix everything together

Treat yourself to the hottest bread in the bakery.

Today they had a soft marble rye

Place one slice of Hoffmans’ cheddar cheese on one side

Add a handful of baby spinach

Season with salt and pepper

Add six sliced banana peppers

Add all the lobster salad

Cover with another slice of warm bread

Cut the sandwich in half

Put some grapes on your plate

Sit down and enjoy a great lunch and for being such a brave girl for going to the doctors.
