2 oz Pancetta
2 medium Yukon gold potato, sliced paper thin (ideally with a mandoline)
½ large leek (white part only), cleaned and thinly sliced
2 oz Gruyere cheese, thinly sliced

Lobster & Pea Risotto

Serves 2 (entree) or 4 (appetizer)

Ingredients:

2 raw lobster tails
Approx 1 cup of chopped vegetables or vegetable peels (ie. onion ends, garlic skin, celery or carrot ends) OR 7 cups vegetable stock
3 sprigs tarragon, plus 1 tsp roughly chopped tarragon
½ cup white wine
1 packet lemon-garlic marinade (inside your Luke’s Lobster tail kit)
3 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 medium onion, finely diced
1 clove garlic, minced
½ cup frozen peas
1 cup arborio rice
½ cup grated parmesan
Salt & pepper 

Directions:

  1.  Heat 7 cups water, vegetable peels, tarragon sprigs, and ⅛ tsp sea salt in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Seven cups vegetable stock can be used as a substitute. Once water comes to a boil, add 2 lobster tails and let cook uncovered for about 2-3 minutes, until tails are bright red and meat is opaque. Remove tails from pot, set aside, and reduce heat to low to continue simmering. 

  2. Once lobster tails are cool enough to handle (approx 2 minutes), remove meat from shell and add shell back to stock. Add white wine to stock. Let simmer for another 7 minutes and then turn off heat. 

  3. Cut lobster meat into 3/4“ pieces and add to small bowl with lemon-garlic marinade. Let marinade while you cook the rice. 

  4. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and saute until soft and translucent. Season with a pinch of salt and add the rice. Stir for 1 minute. 

  5. Add ½ cup warm stock to rice at a time, waiting until it has been absorbed by the rice before adding the next ½ cup. Continue to add stock until rice is cooked through and cannot absorb more liquid - you will end up using about 6 cups, and it will take about 15 minutes. If more stock is needed than you have, use water. 

  6. Turn off heat. Stir in lobster meat with marinade, peas, and top with finely grated parmesan and 1 tsp tarragon just before serving. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Luke's Lobster Roll

Makes 2 Lobster Rolls 

Ingredients:

8 oz lobster knuckle & claw meat
2 New England-style split-top hot dog buns (if you can't find split-top, any high quality bun will do!)
1 Tbsp salted butter
1 tsp mayonnaise
¼ tsp fresh lemon juice
2 pinches Luke's Seasoning

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Remove from the heat and brush half a teaspoon of melted butter onto the outer sides of your buns, saving the rest of the butter for later.

  2. Heat a small pan over medium-low heat for 1 minute, then toast the buns in the pan until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove the buns from the pan and place on a plate.

  3. Spread 1/2 teaspoon of the mayonnaise on the inside of each bun.

  4. Fill each bun with half of the lobster meat.

  5. Reheat the remaining melted butter, if necessary, and add the lemon juice. Drizzle the warm lemon butter evenly over the lobster in each sandwich.

  6. Evenly sprinkle one pinch of Luke's Seasoning on top of sandwich. Serve immediately.
