Lobster Thermidor

My mom, "the Master Chef," is now a contributor on a local television show in our home town, Odessa Texas. Her first cooking segment aired this week and I am so proud of her! We have always said that she should have her own cooking show and now she is doing it! Here is a link to the video of her clip (I hope the link works...) She gives a shout out to me and my blog by making my Korean Short Rib Tacos

Lobster Thermidor

4 Lobster Tails
4 Tbsp butter
2 shallots
2 Tbsp flour
splash wine wine
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup white cheddar
1/2 tsp old bay seasoning
2 Tbsp parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp bread crumbs
lemon wedges
Preheat oven to Broil.
Bring a pot of water to boil. Add lobster tails and boil 7-8 minutes.
Drain and run cool water over lobster to cool and stop them from cooking. Set aside to cool.
Finely dice shallots and grate cheese. 
Heat 2 Tbsp of butter in a saucepan. Add shallots and cook 3-5 mins until soft. 
Add remaining 2 Tbsp of butter.
Once butter melts, add flour to sauce with shallots, whisk and cook for 1-2 minutes.
Whisk in white wine and milk.

Add cheese and old bay, remove from heat. 
Stir until melted and combined.
Using scissors cut away the underside of the shells.
Remove the meat, while keeping the shell in tact.

Cut meat into chunks.
Stir lobster into cheese sauce.
Stuff each lobster tail with the lobster sauce.
Grate Parmesan cheese.
Place tails in a baking dish.
Sprinkle with bread crumbs and parmesan cheese.
Broil for 2-3 minutes.
Serve with Lemon wedges.
