OK, finally posting the recipe we used for that delicious tub of fresh Maine lobster I picked up at the farmer's market. This is a version of Mario Batali's recipe that also calls for fresh basil and mint which I did not have on hand, but can only imagine the layers of deliciousness they would add. So, if you do try this, definitely pick up some basil and mint!! I know I will next time - and there will be a next time.
Steamed and cooled meat from 2-3 lobsters
1 medium red onion, sliced paper thin
1 pound almost overripe tomatoes, chopped into 1/4-inch dice
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
15 basil leaves (I had to use dried)
10 mint leaves (sadly, I didn't have these)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
Mix all ingredients together. Serve. Easy peasy!!
I served this along side the Brie Stuffed Latkes and a little garlic bread (yeah, we love our starches). Obviously this would be so much prettier (and tastier) had I picked up the fresh basil and mint.
