Spicy Baked Lobster

Sometimes you want to make something really special for the person you love. Or you want to make a really special dinner for yourself. I talked to a couple of my friends about making this dinner and they seemed really scared of handling the lobsters. These funky looking crustaceans can be intimidating but hopefully after reading this you’ll want to attempt it at home.

Lobster:

  • 1.5 tsp of pink Himalayan salt (if you don’t have it just use kosher or regular salt)
  • 1 tsp of ground black pepper
  • 1.5 tsp of paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp of chili flakes (or however spicy you like it)
  • 1 tsp of chili powder
  • 4 tbsp of unsalted butter
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp of chopped parsley
  • Oh and the glass of wine if a perk of being the chef!

Cooking: 

Heat an oven to 450F.

In a small bowl mix the powdered ingredients. In a larger bowl melt the butter then add the chopped parsley. Add the dry ingredients and blend. Mix in the lemon juice.

With kitchen scissors (you can use a knife but this is going to be harder) cut the lobster shells down the middle. Using your fingers (and patience) run your fingers down the sides to separate the lobster meat from the shell, be very careful the shells are sharp. Once the meat is separated carefully pull it out and lay it on top of the shell.

Generously cover your lobster with the butter mixture.

In a 450F oven bake the lobster for 12-15 mins.

Yum. Yum. Yum.

Serve with a side of garlic butter. Finely chop a clove of garlic. Add it to a small bowl of melted butter (about 1-2 tbsps) with a pinch of salt and a little lemon juice.
