What to serve with lobster tails?

Angelina Jul 20, 2011 06:18 AM

My mind is blank!! I am making broiled lobster tails tonight for my husband's b-day dinner and I cannot seem to think of anything to serve with it!

I was going to make a mushroom risotto, but is that too heavy or not balanced right?

Any ides I am open for! It seems like I have been grilling so much and making so many sides he has day in and out. I appreciate any help!!

    I am actually having poached lobster tail for dinner tonight. I am having it with roasted asparagus and my three grain pilaf. (jasmine rice, barley and bulgur).

        My vote is for rice pilaf and a green salad. A tomato salad (ie tomato slices and vinaigrette) would also be suitable. Lobster is such a rich meat that you'll be craving something to tone that richness down on your plate.

          I think a light pasta would go wonderful with the lobster

            I'm with you. Lobster and grilled veggies seem incongruous to me. Maybe shredded sauteed zucchini with lemon and dill and shallots on angelhair?

            My vote would be to grill the lobster and serve with an assortment of your favorite grilled vegetables with Parmigiano Reggiano Shavings ......served with a nice Frisee salad with citrus vinaigrette dressing. ..Maybe some grilled peaches, nectarines or pineapple with ice cream and Balsamic vinegar syrup for dessert.

                I just made a quick edit for dessert in the above post....but your idea is something I would like very much myself.....maybe with creme anglaise or Zabalione.
