Lobster is a delicious seafood delicacy that can be prepared in various ways.

Here's a classic recipe for Lobster Thermidor, a rich and creamy dish that's sure to impress your guests. 


For the Lobster:

- 2 whole lobsters (about 1 1/2 pounds each)

- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- Salt and pepper to taste

For the Thermidor Sauce:

- 2 tablespoons butter

- 2 cloves garlic, minced

- 2 shallots, minced

- 1/4 cup dry white wine

- 1 cup heavy cream

- 1/2 cup grated Gruyère cheese

- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

- 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

- Salt and pepper to taste

- Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)


1. Prepare the Lobsters:

  - Start by cooking the lobsters. You can either steam or boil them. To boil, fill a large pot with water and bring it to a boil. Add a generous amount of salt to the boiling water.

  - Carefully add the live lobsters to the pot and cover. Cook for about 8-10 minutes per pound of lobster. For 1 1/2-pound lobsters, this should take around 12-15 minutes.

  - Once cooked, remove the lobsters from the pot and let them cool slightly. You can use kitchen shears to cut open the shells and remove the lobster meat, discarding the shells and any dark intestinal veins. Cut the lobster meat into bite-sized pieces.

2. Prepare the Thermidor Sauce:

  - In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and shallots and sauté for 2-3 minutes until they become fragrant and translucent.

  - Pour in the white wine and cook for another 2-3 minutes, allowing it to reduce by half.

  - Reduce the heat to low, and stir in the heavy cream, Dijon mustard, Gruyère cheese, and Parmesan cheese. Continue to stir until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth and creamy.

  - Season the sauce with salt, pepper, and a pinch of cayenne pepper if you want a bit of heat. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed.

  - Finally, stir in the chopped parsley and the cooked lobster meat. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing the lobster to heat through in the sauce.

3. Serve:

  - Spoon the Lobster Thermidor mixture back into the lobster shells or into individual oven-safe serving dishes.

  - Place the filled shells or dishes under a preheated broiler for a few minutes until the top is golden brown and bubbly.

  - Garnish with fresh parsley and serve hot.

Enjoy your homemade Lobster Thermidor! It's a decadent dish that's perfect for special occasions or a luxurious dinner at home.
