Portions: 4 people
Preparation Time: 45 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
1/2 lb Softened Salted Butter
2 diced Garlic Cloves
1/4 cup of chopped Chives
1 tbsp Tabasco
1 loaf of Bread
1 cup of Strong Cheddar Shredded
1 cup of Mozzarella in slices
1 1/4 cups of Salt per Gallon of Water
4 Lobsters of 1.5 pounds (I prefer the females for their eggs)
30-40 fresh Oysters of average size
Fleur de sel
- For your lobster, inform yourself at the fish market about the cook time since it mostly depends on the season, the sexe and its weight.
- Boil the salted water.
- Put your lobsters into the freezer for about 15 minutes in order to put them to sleep.
- Add your lobsters to your boiling water for the suggested time that you informed yourself on.
- While your lobsters are boiling, it is time to prepare your garlic bread. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Mix your softened butter with the garlic cloves, chives and tabasco. Put aside.
- With a bread knife, make small incisions in your loaf of bread as deep as you can go in order to make little cubes where you will put your garlic butter and cheeses.
- Between said cubes, spread the garlic butter you have just prepared.
- Continuing in between these cubes, add your slices of mozzarella and spread your shredded cheddar all over the top of the loaf of bread.
- Insert your garlic bread into the oven for about 20 minutes.
- While your garlic bread is in the oven, open all your oysters and prepare your lemon wedges, tabasco and fleur de sel so your guests can help themselves.
- When your lobsters are ready, place them on their backs on a bed of ice to stop them from cooking any further.
- In small ramekins, melt some of that garlic butter you have made earlier so that your guests have something to dip the lobster in.
The most difficult part of this recipe was deciding which food to try first. It is simply a luxurious meal that everyone should treat themselves to at least once every summer.
