Spicy Lobster Pasta
This is the kind of recipe that you will want to pull out on a first date if you are eager to impress or you might just be looking to spice things up and impress your significant other.
This dish is spicy and pairs perfectly with our Cheeky Goat Pinot Gris.
What you’ll need:
1 x packet of spaghetti
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large shallot, finely chopped
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
500gms of cherry tomatoes halved
500gms of cooked lobster meat
Freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
Lemon wedges (for serving)
Cook spaghetti in a large pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup pasta cooking liquid.
Meanwhile, heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook shallot and red pepper flakes, stirring often until shallot is softened, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook, stirring often, until tomatoes are soft and juicy, 5–8 minutes.
Add lobster meat to skillet and toss to coat. Add pasta and 1/2 cup reserved pasta cooking liquid; season with salt and pepper.
Cook, tossing constantly and adding more reserved pasta cooking liquid as needed until sauce thickens and coats pasta, about 2 minutes.
