Warm Lobster Taco With Yellow Tomato Salsa

Ingredients:
4 Whole lobsters (1 lb each)
3 tablespoons of Corn oil
6 Whole flour tortillas, 7 inches each
1 cup of Tillamook Jalapeno Jack cheese, grated
1 cup of Spinach leaves, shredded

Yellow Tomato Salsa:
4 cups of Yellow cherry tomatoes or 1 lb yellow tomatoes
1 Whole shallot, large, finely minced
1 Whole garlic clove, finely minced
2 tablespoons of Fresh cilantro, finely minced
1 tablespoon of Champagne or white wine vinegar
2 Whole Serrano Chilies, seeded and minced
2 tablespoons of Limejuice
Salt to taste
1 tablespoon of Maple syrup (if tomatoes aren't sweet)

Preparation:
To make Yellow Tomato Salsa, in a food processor, using steel blade, process tomatoes until well chopped. Don't puree. Combine tomatoes and their juices with shallot, garlic, cilantro, vinegar, chilies, limejuice, salt, and mix well. Add maple syrup, if needed, to balance flavor and
slightly sweeten. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until very cold.

To make taco, fill large stockpot with lightly salted water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add lobsters and cook for about 8 minutes or until just done. Drain and let lobsters cool slightly. Remove meat from lobster tails,
careful not to tear it apart. Cut meat into thin medallions (or medium size dice, if meat breaks apart). Heat oil in medium sauté pan, over medium heat and sauté lobster medallions until just heated through.

Spoon equal portions warm lobster medallions into center of each warm flour tortilla. Sprinkle each with equal portions of grated cheese and shredded spinach. Roll into cylinder shape and place each one on warm serving plate with the
edge-facing bottom. Surround the taco with Yellow Tomato Salsa.

Yum!

Lobster And Mango Cocktail

1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons cognac
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice -- or to taste
Four 1 1/2-pound live lobsters
3 firm-ripe mangoes
1 cup finely diced celery
4 whole Belgian endives plus 12 leaves for garnish
3 tablespoons minced fresh chives plus 24 whole chives for
garnish

In a small bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, the yogurt, the Cognac, the ketchup, the lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste and chill the sauce, covered.

Plunge the lobsters into a large kettle of boiling salted water and boil them, covered, for 10 minutes. Transfer the lobsters with tongs to a bowl and let them cool until they can be handled. Crack the shells, remove the meat, and cut
it into 3/4-inch pieces. Transfer the lobster meat to a large bowl and chill it, covered. The lobster cocktail may be prepared up to this point 1 day in advance.

Halve the mangoes by cutting just to the sides of each pit and, using a 3/4-inch melon ball cutter, scoop the flesh from the mango halves. (There should be about 2 cups.) To the lobster meat add the mango balls, the celery, the whole endives, trimmed and sliced thin crosswise, the minced
chives, and the sauce and toss the mixture until it is combined.

Divide the lobster mixture among 12 chilled small glasses and garnish each serving with 1 of the endive leaves and 2 of
the whole chives.

I sure miss those mangoes...and papayas...and pineapple... smile

If anyone ever heads to San Diego. Make the trip south of the border to Puerto Nuevo. Also known as the lobster town on the Baja Peninsula. It isn't Belize but another good lobster option if anyone is ever in that neck of the woods.

Sandshaker - It's not lobster but Billy's down near pinnacle port over near Panama City has good seafood last time I was there, but you are lucky as Pensacola has it's share too. MMMM a grilled amberjack sandwich on garlic bread!!!

Re: More Lobster recipes... - 01/20/03 11:25 AM

I'll have to try that Robert! Fudpucker's in Ft. Walton is great too...great seafood, killer drinks and a real beach environment.

I'm not much on amberjack...it's a little strong for me. Love snapper and grouper but triggerfish is my favorite fish. It's downright buttery! smile

Thanks for the tip Robert!

Lobster Bisque

Ingredients:
3 bunches of Celery, diced
13 Carrots, skin off and diced
14 Onions, diced
7 large Tomatoes or 20 Roma Tomatoes, diced
6 Red Bell Peppers, diced
4 Green Peppers, diced
5 cloves of Garlic, minced
3-4 Lemons, juiced
2 heaping tbsp. Tomato Paste
20 sprigs of Thyme
15 Bay Leaves
16 Lobster Heads
6 cups of White Wine

Preparation:
In a medium size stock pot add all the ingredients (except the uncooked rice) at one time, and cover with water. Stir until everything is well blended. Once the stock comes to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer. Cook for 1 hour.

After the stock reduces by half, add the uncooked rice. Stir constantly to prevent the rice from sticking to the pot.

Remove and discard the lobster heads. With an immersion blender, food processor, or conventional blender puree all the ingredients until smooth, and then force the mixture
through a fine sieve.

Before serving heat 1/2 cup of heavy cream and whisk it into the strained soup.

Serve hot. Garnish with sautéed wild mushrooms.

Hahaha!
How was your trip girl?
I have made of few of these and they are pretty good. Most cookbooks don't have a lobster recipes so I figured folks could use a few to satisfy their cravings for lobster once they get back from Belize. smile
