Recipe Challenge Day 14 & 15- Valentines Dinner

My husband was sick on Valentines Day so I cooked the day afterwards and he brought me a real treat! Lobster! I have never cooked lobster, or not like this anyways. It was fun and oh so good.

I also made made peppered Shrimp so this is a double recipe for you to enjoy. 

Pepper Shrimp Ingredients

1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp. kosher salt
In the meantime, place the shrimp, extra virgin oil, pepper, and salt in a bowl and toss until the shrimp is coated well;

For the lobster tail. You should have the raw tail shell side up and using sharp shears cut down the center and stop just before the flap of the tail. Carefully peeling the meat back away fro the shell you want to pull it up off the bottom as well. Take the shell sides and fold them down, this would make the meat be ontop of the shell. Season with paprika, pepper, lemon, and butter to taste. Good for about 15 minutes on 350. Shell will turn bright red, meat will be white.
 I didn’t get pictures of this process but it isn’t hard at all!  Enjoy!
