Lobster-Balls And Mung Bean-Noodles Soup

>
>
What  can you do with two small lobster tails ? Well, you could broil them, saute them, grill them, bake them, or you could chop them up.
Now, if you ask yourself what moron would chop up perfectly good lobster tails into a paste, you probably never had a good lobster ball soup. I guess the reason that we don’t see lobster balls in western cuisine (besides the occasional  Lobster Quenelle ) is that we want to see the big bang for the money and lobster balls can’t really compete with the splendor of whole lobster tails strutting their stuff.  But the taste and the texture of lobster balls is something else altogether. Silky-smooth in texture, with the pure taste of sweet fresh lobster, it is a delicacy you should not miss! The preparation is super-easy and can be done successfully even if you are not very experienced in the kitchen. So, next time you purchase a couple of lobster tails, you might want to widen your culinary horizon with this superb dish.

Bone-In Rib Eye & Pasta In Peanut Sauce

Since  I am on a set meal plan for the time being, I am cooking a lot of goodies like this one for my very appreciative neighbor who, together with his wife and kid, loves good food but is (not yet) very successful in the kitchen, although this starts to change a bit since I am guiding him/them whenever I have the time 🙂
(I taste all of what I cook for them, but I can not eat any of it) 😦
This one was a great hit, especially the pasta . I had spaghetti in my larder and used those, but if you want the dish to be a bit more Asian in appearance, you might want to use cellophane/ or rice-noodles instead.
