A very simple lobster scampi recipe that can be made with fresh or canned lobster meat.
- 8-10 oz cooked lobster meat
- 1/2 stick butter
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 8 tsp minced garlic (about 15 cloves)
- 1 tsp paprika
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 cup white wine
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- If desired: a dash of hot pepper oil, crushed red pepper flakes, and/or 1 tbsp hot mustard
Melt butter and olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and brown slightly until fragrant. Whisk in the Worcestershire sauce, white wine, paprika, and mustard if desired. and simmer for 5 minutes. Add lemon juice and the lobster, and cook just long enough for the meat to become hot, to avoid toughening the precooked lobster.
