Lobster with Green Sauce
1 lobster; about 2 lb
1 cup fish stock
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 sprig flat-leafed parsley, chopped
1 bunch basil, chopped
3 marjoram leaves
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 sprig thyme, chopped
In a saucepan, combine the fish stock, salt and pepper, parsley, basil, thyme, marjoram and olive oil. Beat with an electric blender to give a rather thick green sauce.
Cook the lobster, whole, directly on a grill, or under the broiler with the heat not turned up too high, allowing 15 minutes per side.
When cooked, break the lobster in half lengthwise, remove the flesh from the shell and discard the stomach sac and intestines from the head section. Return the lobster meat to the shell and dress with the green sauce.
Gone-ta-pott's Lime Pepper Dipping Sauce
Lime Pepper dipping sauce is so easy to make.
Just add 1 tablespoon of lime pepper to:
1/4 cup of mayonnaise
1/4 cup of sour cream
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup of chicken stock
salt & pepper to taste
Here's a tip for you: Try this as a basting sauce on the grill too!
We do it all the time. You can adjust how thick or thin you want it by how much chicken stock you use. We like it best on chicken and fish.
Note: Lemon Pepper is just as good as Lime Pepper.
- If we are using this sauce for "grilled pork" we like to add 4 tablespoons of catchup to the mix.
- If we are using this sauce for "grilled beef" we like to add 4 tablespoons of our favorite BBQ sauce to the mix.
You must cover and refrigerate.

Boiling A Lobster: When boiling a lobster, the general rule of thumb is to simmer the lobster for 7 minutes for the first pound and 3 minutes for each additional pound. The boiling method (also used to kill crayfish and shrimp) is controversial because some believe that the lobster suffers. See Boiling A Lobster
Steamed Lobster: Steaming is a great way to cook lobster and other seafoods because of the delicate meat. Lobster needs to be cooked in a steamer pot with a removable basket for an average of 15 minutes. You fill the bottom with herbs and seasonings as the steam lightly flavors the lobster as it cooks. Delicate Flavors!
