Cajun Maine Lobster Tails with Garlic Butter

Cajun Maine Lobster Tails with Garlic Butter

Spice up your dinner at home with this unique and flavorful Maine lobster recipe. 

By: Platings and Pairings, sponsored by the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative

Serves 4

Ingredients

4 large Maine Lobster tails, raw
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon Cajun spice
Lemon wedges, for serving
Parsley, to garnish
Melted butter, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat the broiler to high.
  2. With sharp kitchen shears, cut the top of the lobster shell down to the tip of the tail. You want to cut through the top, but not the bottom shell or the meat.
  3. Spread open the shell on top and pull the meat upward, separating it from the bottom shell. Slightly push the shell together so it looks like the meat is sitting on top.
  4. Place on a baking sheet.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the melted butter, garlic, lemon juice, and cajun spice. Drizzle the butter mixture over the lobster meat.
  6. Place on a middle-upper rack of the oven and broil until the lobster meat is opaque throughout and lightly browned, about 8-10 minutes (or 1 minute per ounce of individual tail).

Maine Lobster Tails with Creamy Lemon Parmesan and Asparagus

This savory lobster recipe is perfect anytime in the year, since delicious comfort food is always in season! 

By: The Almond Eater, sponsored by the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative

Serves 4

Ingredients

• Maine Lobster tails, thawed
• ½ bunch asparagus, ends trimmed
• 3 tbsp butter
• Salt and pepper 
For the sauce:
• 1 tbsp butter 
• 4 garlic cloves, minced
• ¾ cup heavy cream
• ⅓ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
• 3 tbsp lemon juice
• Salt and pepper 
• 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped 

Directions

Prep lobster tails: use kitchen shears to cut lobster down the middle, leaving the tail intact. Run your fingers between the lobster meat and the shell to loosen it, then remove the meat and place it on top of the shell.

Heat butter in a large skillet, then place the lobster flesh side down in the skillet. At this time, add the asparagus into the skillet as well.

Place a lid on the skillet, then cook for 2 minutes over medium heat. Then, turn lobster over and sauté the asparagus, place a lid on the skillet and cook for 2 more minutes. Use kitchen tongs to remove lobster and asparagus; set aside.

Keep the butter/lobster juice in the skillet, then add 1 tbsp butter and the garlic and sauté for 2 minutes over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, then add the heavy cream and lemon juice, then slowly stir in the parmesan cheese until it’s melted. Allow sauce to simmer for 1-2 minutes or until it thickens, then add the lobster and asparagus back in.

Drizzle cream sauce over the lobster, sprinkle with fresh parsley and black pepper and enjoy!

Maine Lobster Risotto

Maine Lobster Risotto

By: Cooking with Cocktail Rings, sponsored by the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 medium leek, thinly sliced, whites only
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup arborio rice
  • 3 cups chicken stock, warmed

  • 1 teaspoon diced chives
  • 1 teaspoon diced tarragon
  • 1 cup (about ½ pound) roughly chopped cooked claw and knuckle Maine Lobster meat

Prep

Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and heat through. Add the butter and allow to melt then add the leeks and garlic and sauté until the leeks are soft and translucent, about 6 minutes. Add the rice and sauté to toast the grains, stirring occasionally for 1 to 2 minutes.

Lower the heat to medium-low and add 1 cup of the chicken stock and stir constantly until the stock is almost completely absorbed. Continue to add the stock ¼ cup at a time, stirring frequently and waiting for each addition to be almost completely absorbed before adding the additional stock. The mixture should be at a simmer the whole time.

Continue this process until the risotto is al dente, about 20 minutes.

Stir the Gouda cheese and half of the parsley and lobster meat into the risotto. Divide among warmed serving bowls and top with the remaining lobster meat, parsley, chives, and tarragon for garnish.

[Chicago] Style Lobster Roll

[Chicago] Style Lobster Roll

By: Bobby Parrish, #Foodiechats

A little "Chicago" flare to your lobster roll.

Ingredients

  • 2 Whole Lobsters
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp celery leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp fresh chives, finely chopped
  • 1-­‐2 strips of cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1 ear of corn, charred and cut off cob
  • Kosher salt & fresh cracked pepper
  • New England style buns, or hot dog buns
  • Melted butter
  • 4 wooden skewers

Directions

To make the dressing, add the mayo to a large bowl and add the next 6 ingredients and season with ½ teaspoon of salt & a few cracks of pepper. Whisk to combine and set aside.

Bring a pot of water to the boil, and season it with a generous amount of kosher salt, the water should taste like the ocean. Meanwhile, for each tail, insert 2 skewers right below the shell of the lobster, and thread them all the way through the tail and poke them out the other end of the shell, this will prevent them from curling up in the pot. Boil the tails for 6 minutes, take out of the water, place on a cutting board, and remove skewers. Cut each tail in half by inserting your knife directly through the top of the shell(the meat should still be a little rare in the middle). Brush the meaty part of the tails with veggie oil and season with a pinch of kosher salt and pepper. Preheat your grill to medium high, and grill tails meaty side down for 3-­‐5 minutes until nice grill marks appear, flip and cook on shell side for 2 minutes more.

Take the tails off the grill and pull the meat out of the shells with a fork. Cut the meat into large bite size chunks and add to the dressing. Mix well and let sit for 10 minutes so the warm lobster soaks up the flavor of the dressing. Meanwhile, brush your buns with a generous amount of melted butter both inside and out, and season the inside of the bun with a pinch of salt and pepper. Grill until nice and toasty, only a couple minutes. Build a sandwich and enjoy!

  • If using hot dog buns, cut some of the crust away to make the middle section even wider so you can stuff it with more lobster.
  • To char the corn, pull away the husk and brush with cob with veggie oil. Grill over medium high heat and rotate of the corn every 3 minutes until it is evenly charred all around.
