It’s the long weekend! Which means I get to enjoy some me time and much needed girl time with my ladies after an exhausting work week. I haven’t had lobster in a while because it’s not always available at my grocery store, and it’s quite pricey! But it’s definitely one of my favourite sea food dishes so I treat myself to it when I can.

The lobster was buttered with coconut oil, but you can use grass fed or clarified butter if you prefer. You can also use mashed butternut squash instead of sweet potatoes if you’d prefer something sweeter. Have a great weekend!!

Recipe: serves 2

2 lobster tails (raw)
1 baked sweet potato
1 tbsp. coconut oil (melted)
1 tbsp. organic extra virgin olive oil
A handful of grape tomatoes (sliced)
2 tbsp. chopped red onions
1 chopped scallion
A dash of sea salt and pepper
1/4 tsp curry powder
1 tbsp. organic coconut aminos (or low sodium soy sauce)
1 tbsp. Mrs Dash all spice blend (or seasonings of choice)
Lemon slice (optional)

First, bake your sweet potato. Set your oven to 400ยฐF. Slice sweet potato into cubes and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Season with salt, pepper, curry and olive oil making sure the sweet potatoes are well coated. Bake for 30 minutes.

When ready, transfer potatoes into a bowl and add chopped scallions, tomatoes, red peppers and onions. Mash potatoes with a potato masher or the bottom of a clean mug until you’ve reached a desired consistency. Set aside when ready.

Next, switch your oven settings to broil.

Remove the clear shell covering the meaty part of the lobster tail. I find that kitchen scissors are most efficient with getting it out.

Next mix melted coconut oil, garlic powder, aminos and Mrs. Dash in a cup and brush the exposed part of the lobster with the seasonings.

Place in the oven on a lined baking sheet with the meaty part facing up. Broil for 5-7 minutes or until bubbly and cooked.

When ready, take lobster out of the oven and make your plate with the mashed sweet potatoes. Enjoy!

    This looks so amazing! The thought of cooking lobster always scares me, but this actually looks pretty simple!
