Lobster Dinner

Okay I was at my favourite restaurant the other night – I will let you guess where…Yup Ted and Judy’s! Have I mentioned (7 or 8 times I’m sure) in previous blogs, that the meals I eat there are totally outstanding? Well they are!

Last Friday I had dinner there to do a “family” hang-out as their little dog Duffy passed away after 18 years of being the best family pet. We toasted the “Duffster” with some lovely wine and Ted and Judy made a spectacular meal of a Cantonese style lobster served over rapini and mashed potatoes.

To start, Ted sprinkled a little cornstarch over the lobster which he had broken into pieces. He then sautéed the pieces in a frying pan till they turned red. He then took the pieces out of the pan and added 1 lb of ground turkey (you can use pork too). The ground turkey was stir fried till browned with some chopped garlic, then he added a cup of vegetable stock.  Once cooked Ted added back the lobster and mixed in a finishing sauce of the following:

1 tbsp of corn starch

2 tbsp of soy sauce

1 tbsp Chinese cooking wine

1 tbsp of brown sugar

Mix these ingredients and pour over the lobster/turkey mixture.  Mix and heat in pan. Finish with chopped green onions sprinkled over top.

Judy then made her famous mashed potatoes with only 1 tbsp of butter and some vegetable stock. Soft fluffy and delicious!

The rapini was sautéed with 2 tbsp chopped garlic and 1 tbsp of chopped ginger and some vegetable stock. Judy did the plating of potato, rapini and then the lobster over top.

Outstanding!!!!!

  1. OK I must admit, I don’t get the pork with the lobster…why not just lobster and all those glorious veggies and potatoes- I guess it’s one of those “had to be there” moments…I will just have to trust your good taste, Cindy!
