Entrée – Seafood
Roasted Fresh Maine Lobster
Roasted Fresh Maine Lobster This recipe was featured on
"You're the Chef" episode #303.
Buy this episode from WVIA.
Yield: four dinner portions

Ingredients:

2 each 1-1/2 lb. live Maine Lobster
1/2 lb. salted butter
1/2 c. plain breadcrumbs
as needed paprika
as needed ground black pepper
 


Procedure:
Place the lobster, legs side up, on a clean cutting board. Using a sharp knife, insert it in the base of the leg section of the lobster and cut down quickly in between the legs of the lobster right up through the head. This will kill the lobster immediately and keep all the natural juices and flavor in the lobster. Grasp the lobster and remove the jaw and mouth section near the eyes and tendrils. Break the entire shell in half.

Place the lobster legs-side up on a baking sheet. Ladle the melted butter over the lobster, sprinkling the cavity with breadcrumbs. Season with salt, pepper and paprika. Bake at 400° for about 10 minutes until the lobster is bright red and the butter on the tray begins to brown. Serve the lobster with the butter from the tray, plus additional butter, roasted new potatoes, lemon and your favorite vegetable.
