Lobster Feast Recipe for Christmas

Lobster Feast Recipe photo

This year’s Christmas has been extra special for me and my husband. For the first time, we finally got to have lobsters for our Christmas dinner!

Due to the price drop this year, we were able to buy this rare treat which used to cost many times more than what we paid for.

Never in a million years could I have imagined having lobsters for Christmas. But my dream finally came true this year!

A huge thank you and hugs to my husband who rushed to the shop to buy the lobster well in advance to beat the Christmas mad rush crowd, so we were able to get the lobsters before they were sold out.

This lobster feast I made at home was super simple!

Here’s what I did:

Cooked Lobsters

For the lobsters, we just bought ready-cooked lobsters. I didn’t want to chance having overcooked the lobsters. So we decided to have the experts cook them for us!

To clean and cut the lobsters, I followed this YouTube video from Jamie Oliver’s YouTube channel:

I prepared a few slices of lemon to serve with the lobsters. I decided not to add lemon juice in my garlic butter sauce so that adjust the sourness of the lobsters to our tastes.

Garlic Butter Sauce

10 cloves garlic, chopped

Salt, to taste
Dried/fresh parsley

– Stir-fry the chopped garlic with butter until aromatic.

– Taste and adjust the seasoning accordingly.

Roast Potatoes

6-8 medium-sized potatoes, halved (potato skin removal is optional)
Olive oil
Cracked black pepper
Salt and sugar to taste

– Season the potatoes with olive oil, cracked black pepper, salt and sugar.
– Place the potatoes on an oiled baking tray. Make sure that the potatoes are not on top of each other so they bake evenly.
– Bake the potatoes in the oven at 220 degrees C for about 40 minutes (depending on the size of your potatoes). Make sure to turn your potatoes every 15 minutes or so.
– The potatoes are ready when they are slightly golden brown and soft inside.
– You can test whether they’re cooked by poking a large-sized potato with your knife. If the knife goes through without any resistance, then your potatoes are ready!

Garden Salad

French salad dressing
2 hard boiled eggs
½ of a red capsicum, sliced
A handful of sultanas/raisins
4 handfuls of baby spinach
1 or 2 tomatoes, sliced into wedges

– Put the red capsicum, tomatoes, sultanas/raisins and baby spinach into a large salad bowl.
– Add French salad dressing and mix them all.
– Carefully slice the hard-boiled eggs and place them on top of the salad. This will ensure that the egg doesn’t break up during the mixing process!
– Serve.

Final result:

Here’s what we had! A lobster feast fit for a king and queen.

If you don’t have lobsters, you can make this same meal, but with grilled prawns or fish.
