If you want to make a romantic lobster dish that’s a little different, check out my recipe for butter-poached lobster with red wine fettuccine in caviar sauce. It’s an easy dish you can make at home to “wow” your friends, family or date.
Once you go Brazilian…
1 Brazilian lobster tail or 1 lb lobster
1 stick butter
1 bottle of red wine (750 ml)
1 10 oz package fresh fettuccine (refrigerated section)
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 ounce caviar
exotic peppercorn blend
Using a large pot, boil water and poach lobster for 5 minutes. Remove and cool. Take off shell and cut lobster meat into bite-sized pieces. Rinse pot and add the whole bottle of wine. Bring to a boil. Add sea salt as you would to pasta water. In a 2-quart saucepan, add 1 TB water. Cut butter into 8 TB. Whisk in 1 TB at a time until you have a butter emulsion. Add pasta to water. Boil for time listed on package. Put lobster in saucepan with the butter and simmer for 5 minutes (don’t let boil). Drain pasta, add yogurt and caviar, using tongs to coat the pasta. Using a slotted spoon, take out lobster meat from the saucepan and scatter around the plate. Grind a little exotic peppercorn around the edge of the plate. Serve immediately.
