Summer is the perfect time to try out new seafood recipes your family will love.
Why not shake things up a bit the next time you make dinner, and try a delicious lobster lo mein?
To serve two to four people, you’ll need two live, two-pound lobsters. Begin by cooking the lobster: prepare an ice bath, then bring 6 quarts of water to boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Submerge the lobsters head first, then cover and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until they turn bright red. Then use tongs to place the lobsters in an ice bath for 5 to 10 minutes. Crack and break down the shells, removing as much meat as possible. Chop the meat, then prepare it for cooking by coating it in a half-cup of cornstarch.
While the lobster is cooking, prepare a package of lo mein noodles according to the package instructions.
Then, make your seasoning: combine 4 chopped green onions with 4 cloves of garlic, a tablespoon of minced ginger and a teaspoon of Chinese five-spice powder, then cook in a wok in canola oil for a minute or two, until fragrant. Add the lobster, reduce the heat and cook for 3 or 4 minutes.
The sauce is the final step. Mix a cup of vegetable stock with a quarter-cup of soy sauce, a quarter-cup of mirin (rice wine), a tablespoon of fish sauce and a teaspoon of sugar. Then, add the mixture to the wok with the lobster and vegetables. Add bean sprouts and two more chopped green onions. Stir, then cook until fully heated.
Add the lobster mixture to the noodles and enjoy!
