After-Star-Wars Salt-N-Pepper Lobster


After opening all of our Star Wars-themed Christmas presents (think Star Wars shirts, Star Wars books, Star Wars games, and more), we definitely had Star Wars on the brain. I, casually, asked "Which Star Wars should we watch?" 

I got a resounding and definitive answer: EPISODE 7!!

Wait! Really? Truth be told: I was thinking more along the lines of popping in a DVD while sitting in front of the fire. But, we went with it. It was 8 o'clock; the first showing was at 9:30am. I still had time to finish my coffee without feeling rushed. So, this happened on Christmas morning...


And they were all so happy. More truth: my husband and our eldest son had already seen it twice before. Our youngest and I had only seen it once before. It only opened a week ago. You can say that we're huge fans.


If you're wondering when I'm going to stop writing about Star Wars and give you a recipe. You made it. We came back from the movie and I knew we were heading out in a few hours for my large family's celebration. I needed something quick and easy. I had fresh lobster tails in the fridge.


This recipe is so simple and, as long as the tails are fresh, is on the table in less than 30 minutes.

Ingredients serves 4

  • 4 lobster tails (I used 4 ounce tails)
  • olive oil
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper


Procedure
Butterfly the lobster tails. Read a detail of the process in this post: Purple Sweet Potato Soup with Roasted Lobster. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Brush the butterflied lobster meat with olive oil and sprinkle with freshly ground salt and freshly ground pepper. For a 4 ounce tail, roast for 16 to 18 minutes.

Serve immediately. I rounded out the plate with some blanched asparagus and a tossed green salad. Lunch is served!

    1. It was...and just what I needed before the chaos of our large family celebration that evening.
