What Lobster Meat To Use In Lobster Skillet
These lobster skillets are so easy because you can truly use any kind of lobster meat - I often use frozen pre-cooked picked lobster meat - which is the most economic choice for lobster meat.
While pre-cooked and frozen lobster meat isn't the most luxurious choice (fresh is always best, obviously) - I live in Colorado in a rural area where finding fresh lobster that isn't ridiculously expensive is pretty rare - so I have adapted this recipe to truly be knockout delicious no matter your budget or access to fresh fish.
What to Serve With Garlic Butter Lobster Skillet
This lobster skillet is the perfect easy dish for a romantic dinner - and pairs perfectly with lots of low carb sides like broccolini or lemon garlic scallops (as well as carb-loaded picks like fresh bread and a knockout rice pilaf), but
I'm listing my favorite dishes to pair with this garlic butter lobster skillet below:
This lobster skillet is also AMAZING poured over linguine - take ½ cup of starchy pasta water and add it to the skillet and cook to emulsify, then add freshly boiled and drained (do not rinse fresh pasta) to the skillet and toss with lobster meat.
Top with fresh parmesan, freshly diced green onions, cilantro, or parsley!
