Lobster With Sriracha Sauce Recipe

Feel like splurging on a nice dinner but don’t prefer the fussy restaurant experience? Make lobster tails for you and your loved one(s). Lobster is a luxury, and the price tag certainly reflects it, but lobster is well worth the extra dollars for a change of pace from the regular chicken and pork dishes.

Like a nice steak, the lobster tail is very easy to prepare because the meat itself brings rich flavor.

Lobster With Sriracha Sauce

Lobster tails are much easier to prepare than cooking a whole lobster. If possible, try to purchase freshly-caught lobster straight from the ocean.

To prepare the tails, slice each one open by cutting the top shell halfway through lengthwise, then crack it open with your fingers and pour in the sauce. The slightly spicy and nutty-tasting sauce is a mixture of melted ghee, Sriracha, chives, and lime juice.

Serve these tails with a fresh salad or some cooked vegetables. Maybe you’re celebrating an occasion with this special dinner, so pour yourself a glass of wine, and enjoy!
