Lobster Pasta – amazing lobster pasta recipe you can make at home! Garlicky, buttery and loaded with lobster, it’s better and cheaper than restaurants.
Lobster pasta is one of my favorite pastas ever but eating out costs an arm and a leg, and you get only a few meager pieces of lobster…sometimes the lobsters are not even fresh. This week, my neighborhood store has a live lobster sale for only $9.95/lb so I picked up one 1 1/2 lbs lobster and made it at home. The total meal costs way less than $20 and feeds two people, so cheap!
I fell in love with lobster pasta many years ago when I was traveling in Cape Cod. I remember vividly that pasta; perfectly cooked in a light olive oil-butter-lemon sauce, and topped with juicy and succulent lobsters. This recipe is inspired by that dish with an Asian-flair.
First I cooked the lobster and extracted the meat from the tails and claws. For the seasonings of the lobster pasta, I added Japanese sake (rice wine) and mirin (sweet rice wine) to the dish. The end result is absolutely mouthwatering, extremely flavorful and simply scrumptious. Just look at the pictures, need I say more?
