Lobster Mac and Cheese
Lobster has come down far enough in price these days for just about everyone to afford. And it is a delicious and easy way to make seafood lovers of everyone in the family. Try this rich and fabulous spin on traditional Macaroni and Cheese by making it Lobster Mac and Cheese tonight.
Lobsters across the US usually come from Maine, although there are dozens of species eaten around the world. You can often buy them live, and it is important to know how to identify the good ones from the bad. The best way to tell a good lobster might be how lively it is when you pull it from the tank. If the lobster is showing lots of life, it will probably taste pretty good, too. Buy a smaller lobster, somewhere between one and three pounds, rather than a big hefty one. The flavor is likely going to be just fine in either lobster, but it is likely that you will be able to cook the smaller lobster more evenly with your home cookware. Of course fresh lobster is the best to eat, like most fresh foods, yet if you have to buy frozen or canned, it is perfect for recipes like the one we have here today. This recipe uses just the tail, something you can often buy pre-cooked at the grocery store.Macaroni and cheese has been having a bit of a revival with cooks everywhere adding some really expensive things. You may have heard of truffles, a fungus that grows underground like a potato. It may sound gross, but truffles are an astonishing delicacy, often costing $60 each for something that can fit in the palm of your hand. But their flavor is deep and a bit intangible, somewhat like mushrooms but far, far better. In any event, truffles are now being added to Mac ’n Cheese, too!
So Lobster in Mac ’n Cheese should come as no surprise. This recipe is the real deal, using three different kinds of cheese and preparing a roux for the sauce. Little can compare to a cream sauce or cheese sauce made from scratch and this recipe is no exception. Even the lobster is fresh, made using the tail of the lobster, where most of the meat is found. Seafood in macaroni and cheese is a rich and fabulous dinner, fit for the finest guests. At the same time, it is the perfect way to introduce seafood to your family.
