Looking for a nice side dish for Lobster...
Looking for a side dish for steamed Lobster that can be prepared either the day before or in the time it takes to cook the Lobster. Dinner (for relatives) around 9 PM so nothing too heavy. Something other than cole slaw or corn on the cob...
Check out two nearly identical questions posted on this board: "Sides for steamed lobster?" and "What to serve with lobster?" Personally, I like a chilled, crisp fennel and artichoke heart salad to contrast and clean the palate, but there are a ton of opinions out there.
I like saffron rice. As regards asparagus, it goes with anything. Or you could have a steamed artichoke and dip the entire meal in clarfiied butter!
are you wanting a starch or veggie?
i always like marinated roasted mushrooms... easy to marinate ahead and roast while the lobsters steam.
i'd also like a roasted celery and fennel slaw with some caraway and maybe onion....
and my personal favorite is good ol steamed broccoli... fancy it up with some al limone.
