You do not have to wait for the weekend to go out and savor a lobster, because you can make one right in your own kitchen on weekdays with these easy recipes that are also healthy.
Without any further ado, let us have a look at some of the healthy recipes that we have created and conjured for you:
The first thing to learn when you are making lobsters is to understand how you can boil a lobster. You will need about a quarter of a pound of salt in a gallon of water. It is best to choose medium sized lobsters since they will all be cooked evenly when you are done.
Take a stew pan and boil the salt water in it. Add the lobster in after the water starts to boil and continue this for a period of about 20 minutes to 45 minutes. The exact time that you allow for boiling depends on the size of the lobsters that you have chosen. Make sure that you skim well- this is a task that you must not forget.
Remember that if you boil the lobster for too long, the meat will become chewy, and if it is not boiled for an adequate amount of time, then you will not have a properly cooked lobster. It is also a good idea to dash a little butter or sweet oil on the shell and wipe it off later. This is one of the easy recipes that you will find and is also one of the best healthy recipes for lobsters.
To make a hot lobster, what you need is one lobster, about 2 pounds of butter, nutmeg, salt and pepper, mace, bread crumbs, and a couple of eggs.
Grate the nutmeg and keep it aside and make sure that the mace is pounded well. Pound the lobster meat to a smooth consistency. Add the butter and seasoning to the well pounded meat. Once the seasonings are mixed completely, add the bread crumbs to the meat as well. Beat the eggs (the white and the yellow together) and sprinkle the mixture over the lobster meat that you have prepared.
Bake this dish for about 15 minutes. Make sure that you put it in the oven just when you know that you are about to serve. You can also serve it in a very delicate manner by using the shells to decorate it so that it looks like a whole lobster when laid down.
One of the best lobster recipes that you will find anywhere is the lobster salad. What you will need is a lobster, lettuce, beetroot, cucumber, endives, and a couple of hard boiled eggs.
For the dressing of this lobster recipe, you will need oil and vinegar in equal quantities, mustard, 2 egg yolks, cayenne and salt to taste, anchovy sauce (about 3 teaspoons). All the ingredients for the dressing can be mixed together thoroughly to make a creamy sauce that makes for a great dressing for the salad.
Wash all the vegetables that you are going to use in the salad and dry them by shaking them in a cloth. Chop the lettuce and endive, beetroot, and cucumber and toss them together. Pick the meat from the lobster and make sure that you do this carefully, because you want to cut the lobster meat into small square pieces for the salad. Throw in half the lobster squares into the salad and keep the remaining aside for garnishing.
Remove the egg yolks from the hard boiled eggs and chop the whites finely. Mash the yolks to form a paste like consistency. Arrange all the salad on a plate and throw in the garnish and the sauce. Use some of the white of the egg, cucumbers, and lobster meat to garnish and decorate.
