What to do with 2lbs cooked lobster

DanInCambridge Jul 14, 2008 11:59 AM

I have 2 lbs of cooked lobster in my freezer that I want to use. It is a mix of tail and claw meat. I am trying to stay away from a lobster salad, but if you have a really unique recipe (or one with no mayo) I'd like to hear it.

    put in an insulated box with dry ice. Mail to Denver.

    Your problem is solved!!

    it's already cooked.. other posters have given good ideas... one additional one:

    make a shellfish stock using lots of shrimp shells and heads, lobster shells if you can find, then make a pasta sauce... cream... tarragon... some concasse tomatoes, squid ink pasta if you have it? then add the lobster at the last minute just to warm but not cook.

      I have a friend who makes the most amazing appetizer/hors d'oeuvre - it's a lobster filling - sort of like lobster a l'Americaine - in phyllo triangles, baked. I don't have the recipe, but you could probably find some on line to use for the filling.

      P.S. Here's one I found on line - I'm pretty sure hers had cognac though, and maybe just a little tomato? http://www.lobsterfrommaine.com/info....

        You can always send it to me!!!! We're kind of lacking in crustaceans out here in Arizona. I can't think of anything more than what these good people have posted except maybe use it in a Lobster Dip, lobster salad or use as a filling for crepes or an omelette

            I second that. I can probably eat my weight in lobster rolls!
