I have a major thing for lobster. I would say my feelings for lobster are on par with my feelings for chocolate. Whenever we’re at a nice restaurant that is fit to serve great lobster and it is mentioned while the specials are being read, my brain shuts down. My choice is made – lobster it is. This year for Valentine’s Day I learned how easy it is to make lobster at home (easy!) so I was ready to do more with it. This dish combines lobster, shrimp and cod pieces in a rich, flavorful cream sauce baked with a seasoned bread crumb topping.
Certainly more expensive and decadent than our average meal, I have had this earmarked in my mind for the occasion of selling our house. I’ve been waiting for months to try this dish but it did not disappoint. It received rave reviews from everyone who tried it and I think it really is the perfect entrée for special occasions. This was ideal for entertaining because I did all of the prep and assembly (minus the breadcrumb topping) early the day of our party and just refrigerated them until I was ready to bake them. It was very convenient. A reader mentioned this would be a nice dish for Mother’s Day and I think that sounds like a wonderful idea. Think Andrew can learn his way around the kitchen in time?
