Mike's Easy Garlic Lobster Linguine step by step
- Dethaw your pre-cooked lobster claws in fridge. Reserve all fluids within your bag for your linguine water noodle boil. Or, 1 cup seafood broth/stock..
- Once claws are dethawed, pour those fluids at the base of the bag into your linguine boil pot, or, add 1 cup seafood stock/broth and bring to a heavy boil. Also, add your salt and olive oil. Your linguini will soak up that sweet seafood flavor quite well!.
- In a seperate pan, place everything in the White Alfredo Lobster Sauce section. Hold off on the lobster..
- Remove rubber bands from claws. One by one, place a Ziplock Bag [or equivalent] over the claw[s] - with a towel over them and break up your shells with a kitchen mallet. Break all of them and remove lobster meat..
- Triple check your lobster for any hidden shells. Trust me - they'll be well hidden. Rough chop your lobster meat. You'll be able to feel for additional shells during your rough chop as a fourth check. ° Place your lobster meat into your white sauce. Heat until hot then immediately reduce to low.
