Lobster and Asparagus

Day 11 of 31:  Back to Basics

They had a package of two lobster tails in a pack at Trader Joe’s for a great price, so I picked some up.  Lobster tails are succulent, low in calories and high in Omega-3 fatty acids.

Lobster and Asparagus

Bring a pot of water to a boil and add your lobster.  I boiled mine for four minutes (this depends on the size of your lobster tails ~ mine were medium).  The meat should be opaque throughout.

With asparagus, I am very picky with how I prep them before steaming.
1.  Toward the end, find the natural weak point and snap off the tough end.
2.  I use a peeler and peel the asparagus up about an inch or two from bottom (the break point).
3.  Simply steam your asparagus.  Season with salt.  Put a pat of butter or ghee on top.
Note:  Peeling the asparagus will make them so tender.

Plate your lobster and asparagus with a little melted butter or ghee.
