Given that Allie and I just recently began cooking more daring recipes at home, the idea of cooking lobster in our kitchen, made us both a little hesitant. Never before had either of us cooked lobster, so immediately we became nervous about the outcome. However, the excitement of bringing one home and researching how to properly cook it, made us eager to give it a try. The experience of buying and cooking the lobster was surprisingly easy. Rather than a whole lobster, we purchased a lobster tail. This selection made for the perfect amount of meat for the two of us. Best of all, the preparation process for a lobster tail was extremely simple.




Lobster Pot Pies

Eating seafood in the summer is such a perfect, warm day experience. Although a classic cold weather dish inspired this meal, the light flavors and the addition of lobster made it not too heavy. The pastry dough at the top gave the pot pie an incredible crunch, and crisp corn added a great, summer flavor. The overall richness of the dish balanced well with the fresh taste of lobster. This dish was so perfect for warm weather, but could easily be enjoyed year round to savor the delicious flavors.
