Spicy Lobster

Last week, lobsters were on special and it is not very often you get them at a cheap price. So, my Korean friend made an easy-to-make spicy lobster dish. Adjust the level of spiciness to your liking. The procedure for cooking lobster can be found in the lobster with pasta recipe.

Serves 2-3
Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : about 10 mins

1 lobster
2 shallots, cut into thirds
1 red chili pepper, sliced
1 jalapeno pepper, sliced
1 tbsp red pepper paste
1 tbsp honey
salt and pepper
black sesame seeds for garnish


1. Cook lobster in a large pot filled with water over high heat. Cook until it changes colour, about 8 mins per pound. Remove meat from lobster shells.

2. In a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Stir fry shallots, red chili pepper, jalapeno pepper until fragrant, about 1 min.

3. Add lobster meat and stir in red pepper paste and honey until coated. Season with salt and pepper. Serve and sprinkle with black sesame seeds.

  2. I love lobster but I must confess, I've never cooked one myself. Your recipe looks fabulous! I love the black sesame seeds!

  3. @Ungourmet : It is better to try than not to try. As a physicist, it is better to make mistakes and from that, you learn from it. Think of cooking lobster like cooking a whole chicken.

  4. Oh man, I have never considered lobster in such a fiery dish, but WOW!

  5. Holy Moly!!! This looks AMAZING!!!!!!!!

  6. Wow, Victor! This looks scrumptious!!

  7. I don't know how I overlooked this. I love lobster but will probably do the recipe with shrimp

  8. Cooking is all about experimenting. Shrimp should do fine also, let me know how it turns out.
