Lobster with Garlic Parmesan Spaghetti


1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook lobster for 5 minutes. Remove and place in an ice bath to stop the cooking process.

2. Cut bacon into approximately 1 cm (1/2 inch) pieces and render down in a frying pan over medium-low heat until brown and crispy. Remove bacon from pan, reserve for use.

3. Mince shallot and garlic and combine in a small bowl and set aside.

4. In a heavily salted pot of water at a roaring boil, cook two portions of pasta until desired doneness.
Chef note: The best way to determine how much pasta is equal to “one portion” is to touch your index finger halfway up your thumb. The circle that is made is roughly how much you will
need per portion. Reserve some of the pasta cooking water and set aside.

5. In a pan over medium heat, sauté your shallots and garlic until translucent. Add cream to shallots and garlic and reduce for 2 to 3 minutes. Add pasta, lobster, bacon, and chives. Stir until thick and creamy.

6. Finish with a squeeze of lemon juice, chopped chives and grated parmesan. If the sauce seems too thick once the cheese is added, add a little more cream or warm pasta water to thin it out. Divide the lobster meat and pasta evenly onto two plates. Garnish with chopped parsley and more shavings of parmesan cheese.
