 Mushroom and Lobster Risotto Recipe Recipe

Risotto might appear a bit fancy but once you know how to prepare the delicious rice dish you can make many variations. Today, since I'm still in France, I decided to showcase an extravagant, ritzy version with lobster and bolet mushrooms

You can prepare this comforting dish all year long. All you have to do is adapt the ingredients of the season. I added a bit of cream at the end for extra decadence and curly parsley for a nice contrast of color. Believe me, if you give this a try, you'll feel like you’re at a nice Parisian restaurant!

Lobster Orzo Pasta Salad Recipe Recipe

Lobster Orzo Pasta Salad Recipe

This is one of my favorite salads. I pan-seared halved lobsters and garnished them with fennel, lemon and celery orzo salad. To add a luxurious touch to an already luxurious dish, I drizzled the salad with truffle oil. 

To ensure that my husband Lulu was able to share the same meal with me, I prepared the orzo salad separately from the lobster so both of us could enjoy it to our liking; Lulu loved his flavorful vegetarian meal and I absolutely adored the addition of seafood. Feeding a vegetarian has never been this easy!

Grilled Lobster Tail Recipe

I prepared lobster over the weekend because I wanted to cook something gourmet in honor of Bastille Day (the French equivalent of Independence day, but on July 14th). It's not a traditional thing to serve in France for Bastille Day, but it was a great excuse to make good use of our barbecue grill and cook up some seafood.

The dish is ultra easy. I simply grilled halved lobsters and garnished them with tarragon, chives, garlic and lemon, then drizzled them with truffle oil. It was almost too sinful to eat, but somehow I managed to find the strength!

Lobster Ceviche Recipe

This is lobster cooked ceviche style. I got the inspiration from our anniversary trip to Cancun several years ago. The concept is very simple: seafood is partially "cooked" by incorporating a citrus marinade. The marinade was made up of the usual key ingredients, lemon juice and wasabi.

What makes this chilled dish so refreshing is the added celery, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, green bell pepper, green Thai chiles and dill.

Roasted Lobster with Almonds Recipe

Roasted Lobster with Almonds

12.30.11 by Jackie

Oven-roasted lobster with almonds ("homard rôti aux amandes" in French) is Papa's (my dad's) specialty. Papa doesn't cook on a daily basis, except for Maman's birthday and special occasions such as New Year's Eve. Exactly one year ago, my husband Lulu and I were in Paris, celebrating the holiday season with my parents. And of course, Papa pleased me by cooking my favorite dish. First, the lobster is poached for a few minutes, then a drizzle of Hollandaise sauce covers the lobster meat along with a sprinkle of toasted almonds. Then, the lobster dish goes in the oven for a few minutes.

I absolutely love this seafood dish. The lobster meat turns out sweet and succulent. For obvious reasons, this luxurious dish isn't an everyday meal, but it’s a great way to make special occasions that much more special.
