Albertson's had buy one frozen cooked lobster get two free, I decided to whip up a quick risotto with some of them.
I was kind of lax on getting some good pics, but here is what I have. It came out pretty good.
Started just steaming the frozen lobsters to defrost. Once defrosted i removed claws and tails and go the meat out, chopped into bit size pieces.
Put all of the shells and heads into a pot with some water, peppercorns, bayleaf, few other seasonings and let boil for a good hour - hour and half. These were full of roe, added some good flavor.
Strained the stock off and let reduce for a few minutes just to intensify the flavor.
I added some olive oil to a smaller pot and sauteed some onions until clear, then added my risotto and toasted it for a few minutes until it started popping. Added sine white wine and stirred until absorbed. Slowly started to ladle in the stock stirring constantly until all of it was absorbed, then repeat until it go the consistency I wanted and rice was cooked.
When it was pretty close to being where I wanted it, I added some chopped asparagus then the lobster meat back to the pot. Added a good bit of Parm/Regianno cheese and let melt.
Don't have a good picture of it dished up neatly, but here it the pot once fire was turned off. (messy)
Like I said, pictures weren't great, but I served this on side of some NY Strips I grilled med-rare. No complaints!
