Like grilled cheese sandwiches and lobster. Try this new recipe, courtesy of Iron Chef Marc Forgione and T-fal that puts a little twist and the grilled cheese sandwich!
Does it look or sound good? Here is the recipe below:
Lobster Grilled Cheese Recipe
- 2 cups Lobster Stock If you can’t find Lobster Stock, get seafood stock, which should be available at Whole Foods or Fox & Obels
- 4 1 ½ pound lobsters, claws removed
- ¼ cup Sriracha
- 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
- Juice of 2 limes
- 6 ounces 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
- 4 tablespoons canola oil
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons chopped tarragon
- 8 slices of fontina cheese
- 4 slices Pullman Loaf or other high-quality thick sliced white bread 1” thick
Cut the tails off the lobster bodies, and into 1-inch pieces while the tails are still in their shells
Bring the Lobster Stock to a simmer and add the Sriracha, soy sauce and lime juice. Piece by piece, whisk in 6 tablespoons of butter until emulsified. Reduce the remaining sauce until it slightly thickens, about 2 minutes.
Toss the lobster tail pieces in oil with salt and pepper and cook for 1-2 minutes or until cooked through. Place the lobster pieces in a bowl and transfer to the fridge until cooled. When the lobster pieces have cooled, pop the meat out of the tails and set aside.
For each sandwich take two slices of bread. Place one slice of fontina cheese on top of the first slice, cover the cheese with some lobster meat, sprinkle ½ tablespoon of tarragon, cover with a second slice of fontina cheese, and then top with the second piece of bread. Brush the outer sides of each slice of bread with melted butter and season with salt. Grill the sandwich on the T-fal Mini Grilled Cheese Griddle and serve with a small bowl of the chili sauce on the side.
I posted this recipe a few weeks ago 🙂 doesn’t it look AMAZING, I almost tinkled my pants when they sent it over to me because I am such a lobster lover. Definitely on my summer to cook list.
Well, that’s an interesting mix. Definitely looks tasty!
I love this recipe. I am not a big lobster fan, but my son is and will be able to eat an unlimited supply of these sandwiches! lol. I don’t want to know how many he will be able to eat when he is a teenager…
You had me at lobster, then again at cheese. This is such a treat!
