Happy New Year 2018! Every New Year’s Eve we indulge in a lobster dinner. We avoid the cold. We avoid the traffic. We stay safe and warm and toast to the new year and eat lobster. Life is Beautiful! I zoi einai oraia!
Yianni is the chef for this particular feast. Lobster Killer, Qu’est-ce que c’est? (Sorry for the Talking Heads / Julie & Julia mash-up reference. I couldn’t resist.)
Boiling lobster is fairly easy. If you Google it you’ll get 22,500,000 results. Here’s a fun site called “How to Cook the Perfect Lobster.” It’s got an infographic too!
This year we had two special guests, (not the lobsters, there were 4 of them) our son Rahbi and his girlfriend Jaden. Aren’t they adorable?
It was Jaden’s first time eating lobster and she definitely enjoyed it.
In the past, when we have had quite a few more guests, I’ve made Lobster Fettuccine Alfredo. You can get my recipe here. And there’s a version on that page that’s printable, so you can file it away and refer to it later.
It’s a great way to serve lobster to more people, because lobster can be a bit costly. It’s delicious and quite frankly, easier to eat. IMHO
I know, you’re probably thinking, “Hey, wipe the plate before you take the photo!” Doesn’t it look really good though? Kalí órexi!
Happy New Year! Xrónia pollá!
