Lobster Mashed Potatoes


These lobster mashed potatoes have been in our library of recipes for several years and every time we make them the response is always the same, Wow!

  • Ingredients:
    1. 2 8 oz frozen uncooked lobster tails; thawed
    2. 1/3 cup milk; coconut by Silk is our preference, plain flavored
    3. 2 tsp fresh tarragon; finely chopped
    4. 8 redskin potatoes; large
    5. 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
    6. 2 Tbsp sour cream, optional; light is also an option
    7. sea salt & ground black pepper; pinch of each
  • Directions:
    1. I start by partially peeling the potatoes, leaving small thin strips of skin in tact. If you want to peel the entire potato, that'll work too.
    2. Cut potatoes into quarters, transfer to a large saucepan without water & set aside.
    3. Place lobster in a separate large saucepan of boiling water until center begins to become opaque in color, approx. 6-8 minutes.
    4. Carefully remove lobster from water & place on a large cutting board. 
    5. Pour lobster water over potatoes, enough to fully cover them, boil until soft enough to stick a fork through.

      - Meanwhile carefully remove lobster meat from shell & cut into small bite size pieces.
    6. In a small saucepan heat milk to a low simmer, add lobster meat & tarragon, turn off heat.
    7. Strain potatoes and transfer to a large mixing bowl, mash with potato masher.
    8. Add in all remaining ingredients.
    9. Using an electric hand beater mix all ingredients together on medium speed into a whipped consistency.
    10. Serve these as a side with your favorite cut of beef or piece of seafood and get a Wow every time!
