#RecipeoftheDay Lobster Pasta

Cooking lobster isn’t that difficult. It takes time, however there is nothing like homemade food. See below the  recipe of a Lobster Pasta that I recently prepared and shared with you on Instagram.

Recommendations to buying your lobster: Buy a fresh  lobster of between 2 pounds to 3 pounds from your nearest supermarket. I will say, buy the lobster the day you are going to cook it.

Ingredients

For the sauce:

  • 5 Tomatoes
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion chopped
  • 3 Italian green peppers
  • 2 Italian red pepper
  • 2 CupS of water
  • 2 medium size clove garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper

You can also prepare your own sauce as your convenience, or get the one that is ready but check that it doesn’t have any added sugar, it changes the flavor significantly.

Instructions

Mix all of the above ingredients in the mixer until you get a thick paste. Add the mix to a big sauce pan, let it boil. Add the lobster afterwards. Let it boiled until Lobster color is red. On a separate pan, cook pasta as usual – leaving you a recipe on how to cook al dente pasta here-.

Once the pasta is cooked, remove the Lobster from the sauce. Pour the pasta on the sauce, mix carefully and voila. You might add parmigiano cheese or pecorino romano although some people prefer not to add cheese to Lobster pasta.

The next challenge is to open the Lobster. Leaving you a few tools that you might need in order to complete this:

Wine Pairing

I’ll recommend you to pair with Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Assyritiko or  Arneis. However, if you feel confident or adventurous you can also pair this with Pinot Noir or Syrah as I did.
