Lobster in Cream Sauce


I wanted to make something special for a pre NYE dinner with the hubby. Costco had some pre cooked lobster so I thought I would try it. I did some searching for recipes and was not impressed with anything I found, so I came up with this one on my own.

12 oz lobster, shrimp or Langostines, cooked
2 tsp canola oil
2 shallots minced
2 TBSP cognac
1 c white wine
1 tsp espelette pepper
1 tsp south African smoked spice from Trader Joe’s or smoked salt
8 oz creme Fraiche
8 oz spaghetti pasta

In a 12 inch skillet heat oil over medium heat, add shallots and cook until softened. Add cognac and cook until absorbed, add wine, pepper, smoke salt and reduce heat to low. Once wine is mostly absorbed, add creme Fraiche, stirring until well combined.

Meantime cook pasta. When pasta is almost done, add the seafood to the sauce to hear through. Using tongs, add the pasta to the sauce and stir to combine.

Serves 2.
