How Was the Lobster Newburg Recipe?

This was delicious. I can tell you the husband was so very upset when I told him I was reviewing a lobster cookbook and we would have to have lobster for dinner. The recipe is definitely one that would work for a special occasion meal. It was not difficult to make but it is certainly one to remember. I didn’t have time this night but I think this would be amazing on homemade pasta. I can also see this sauce working with shrimp if you don’t have lobster on hand.

Sometimes it’s really nice to have a celebration dinner for no good reason at all. 

How About the Lobster Cookbook?

It has lots (75) of recipes celebrating everyone’s favorite crustacean. Some are simple and some are meant for a more celebratory occasion but all of them showcase the lobster. As I looked through the book I found the recipes easy to read and other than the lobster itself, no real exotic ingredients – OK, maybe a truffle but I don’t do truffles so I flipped by that recipe.

The book offers recipes for dips, soups, sandwiches, main dishes and more. There are several I’m looking forward to trying. I have another pair of tails in the freezer but am saving them for a special occasion. I know what cookbook I’ll pull out for when I do cook them.
