Boiled Lobsters with Scallion-Pepper Butter

When you cannot pass off a good food sale, indulge yourself. It hurts me when I have to pay $50+ for a boiled lobster dinner with regular butter, pasta, or grain side dish and look-alike frozen vegetables.

I seldom eat out now, and when I do, I never order lobster because I enjoy it better at home. Who has time to look pretty when you need to use your hands to crush a lobster? Not me!

There’s not much you can do with a lobster cracker and a small fork. I stay home, make Boiled Lobster with Scallion-Pepper Butter and pig out. LOL…

Recipe tips and notes for boiled lobsters

We all know what plain butter tastes like and why it is the most common ingredient in serving lobster. What happened to spice up the butter? When I talk about spicing up the butter, I don’t mean salt and pepper. I am talking about fresh herbs and fancy vinegar. It is not only the other ingredients I pay attention to but also the butter.

With any dish, real butter makes a big difference. Try eating a cheap butter on a piece of bread and a good butter brand on another piece of bread. You will instantly notice the difference. Why do you think the French are better at making pastries because they know their butter.

I am not saying that one should buy the most expensive ingredients to cook but believe me when you start using specific ingredients, you will notice the difference in taste and texture.

The only thing I don’t enjoy when boiling fresh lobster is lifting them to add to boiling water. I still remember my misadventure with live crabs when I was younger. I will never poke another live lobster or crab again. They can run!!! LOL
