There’s so much you can do with lobster meat. You can mix it with lemon and mayo on a toasted bun, toss it with a salad, or add it to a creamy risotto or soup.
Note: You can make this Lobster and Mascarpone Lemon Sauce with just the lobster tails or a whole lobster (tail + claw meat).
1. Call a few stores to see who has live lobsters or at least lobster tails.
2. Ask if they can steam them for you. This is a free service.
3. When you first arrive at the store head straight to the seafood counter and pick out your lobsters or lobster tails.
4. When picking out lobsters choose an active female lobster. The more active the lobster, the more tender the meat. Also look for long antennae, this is also another indicator for tender meat.
5. Once you have the lobster picked out have them steam the lobsters for you.
6. While they are steaming the lobsters do the rest of your shopping. Depending on how busy they are this usually takes about 15 to 20 minutes. Easy. Right!
Here’s an easy and quick video on how to clean your lobster once you get home (video is 1 minute and 18 seconds).
Don’t forget the wine: There are 2 types of wine I enjoy with this dish. I like a Dry Rose from Provence or a Chablis from France. Also a good Chardonnay will be perfect with this dish too.
