Written by in , Comments Off on Recipe for Greek Style Lobster with Oil and Lemon

Lobsters can be found throughout Greece, but they’re a little different than North American lobsters. However, this dish works with any type of lobster you can find.

Greek Style Lobster with Oil and Lemon (Astakos me Ladolemono) Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 lobsters, 1 1/4 pounds or so each
  • 1 recipe ladolemono
  • 2 tablespoons fresh, chopped herbs (parsley, oregano, thyme, chives, etc)

How to make Greek Lobster With Oil and Lemon:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil with the heat set on high. Once the water boils, add the vinegar and salt. Add the lobsters to the pot and bring the water to a boil once again over medium-high heat. When the water boils, set the heat on medium and cook the lobsters for an additional six minutes.

Drain the lobsters and blot the shells with a towel to get them dry. Remove the meat from the shells and set aside. Let the meat cool for about ten minutes and then chop it coarsely. Place in a serving platter.

Prepare the ladolemono according to the recipe. Pour it over the lobster and then sprinkle the fresh, chopped herbs over the meat. Serve immediately.
