It’s always hard to hear, see or eat a lobster without thinking about Julia Child’s famous “Lobster” episode.
It’s Valentine’s Day on Friday and time to think about taking your loved one out for dinner. I was just telling Art that I prefer eating seafood (King crab legs, salmon, lobster) on romantic nights. I don’t feel weighed-down from the meal and can muster up the energy for dancing or snuggling.
Last week we were cozying on up with some delicious crustaceans. Red Lobster invited LatinoFoodie to kick-off its annual Lobsterfest that runs through April. We sampled ALL of its new lobster selections. I remember Red Lobster as a place I would visit on special occasions, a birthday, graduation, etc. So, when we got invited to taste the various lobster dishes, we were beyond thrilled. Art got a little carried away. I don’t blame him. We don’t get to eat lobster all that much and this was our opportunity.
We had lobster in creamy garlic sauce, on top of pizza, and stuffed in a mushroom with crab. Take a look at some of the delicious new dishes:
Dueling Lobster Tails: A roasted Maine lobster tail topped with tender shrimp in a creamy garlic sauce paired with a golden-baked Maine lobster tail with crab-and-seafood stuffing. Served over mashed potatoes, roasted tomatoes and green beans.
Lobster in Paradise: A split Maine lobster tail fried in our signature coconut batter, spicy grilled shrimp and a lobster-and-shrimp bake topped with toasted crushed macadamia nuts.
Ultimate Surf and Turf: A Maine lobster tail baked with crab-and-seafood stuffing paired with a peppercorn-seasoned grilled sirloin topped with Maine lobster meat in a citrus-hollandaise sauce. Served over mashed potatoes, roasted tomatoes and green beans.
It was good to hear that Red Lobster is committed to making a difference in the lives of others in the local community. As part of this commitment, Red Lobster restaurants participate in the Darden Harvest program, which has donated more than 67 million pounds of food to local community food banks across the country.
