Baked Slipper Lobster with Garlic and Cheese
Baked Slipper Lobster with Garlic and Cheese. I have included this dish as one of the Christmas dish on our 2011 Celebration’s recipes since the recipe main ingredients could be adapted to use large prawns or shrimp instead of the pitik or slipper lobster which may not be readily available. This is my second recipe of slipper lobster, I have previously cooked the slipper lobster with the usual guinataang, click the link to see the recipe of the Guinataang Pitik, Slipper Lobsters on the archives.
Baked Slipper Lobster with Garlic and Cheese cooking method is the same with Baked Tahong. The lobsters are cut in half the bake at different stage with butter garlic and cheese. As I said you can use prawn or shrimp with this recipe, the result should be similar with the lobster. Here is the recipe of my Baked Slipper Lobster with Garlic and Cheese.
2 large size slipper lobster, cleaned
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated salted butter
3-4 tbsp. minced garlic
Split cut the lobster including the shell in half, length wise with a big knife. Arrange the lobsters side by side in a baking dish with the meat facing up, drizzle with the juice from the lemon.
Evenly top the lobster halves with garlic, then with the grated butter.
Place in an oven preheated to 400°F. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes.
Now top the lobster with the grated cheese and continue to bake for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the cheese start to change to yellow brown in color. Remove from oven and arrange the lobster in a platter. Drizzle the juices that are collected from the baking dish and serve.
