I still have four small lobster tails in the freezer
from New Years.
Decided to make something Chinese.
I love the combination of ginger, garlic and black beans.
Lobster with a Ginger, Garlic and Black Bean Sauce
2 Whole Lobsters
4 lobster tails
Oil for frying lobster
1″ knob of ginger, sliced and julienned
4 garlic cloves thinnly sliced
8 to 10 green onions.
3 or 4 tablespoons fermented black beans
3 or 4 small Thai red chiles (optional)
Spoon of Chili Garlic Sauce
Splash of Shoa Xing
Heat oil in Wok until really hot.
Cut lobster into pieces.
Coat with corn starch and fry in wok, in batches, a few pieces at
a time. Just a minute or so on each side.
Remove from oil and set aside.
Pour off most of the oil out of the wok.
Adjust burner to medium. Add the ginger, garlic, and the tops of
the green onions, sliced.
Saute for a minute or two and add the black beans, splash of Shoa
Xing cooking wine, and chicken broth and chile garlic sauce to
Add the lobster back into the pan, toss to coat with sauce and
simmer for 6 or so minutes until lobster is cooked. Slice the
green part of the onion into 1″ to 2″ pieces and add to the Wok.
Toss and serve over rice.
