Lobster Fra Diavolo

1-IMG_0011-001Ingredients:

Three 1-1/4 lb boiled or steamed lobsters (chix) de-shelled and meat removed
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 red chile peppers, thinly sliced
2 peperoncini peppers, thinly sliced
3 Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs tomato paste
1 medium shallot, chopped
1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
3/4 cup dry sherry
1 1/2 lb heirloom or plain cherry tomatoes halved (leave the small ones whole)
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, roughly chopped
1 cup fresh basil leaves roughly chopped
cooked pasta of your choice to serve
Salt and a dash of black pepper (to taste)1-IMG_0026

Directions:

Heat the oil in a pot with a lid over medium to medium-high heat.  Add the chiles, peperoncini, garlic, and shallots. Cook, stirring, for 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and red pepper flakes (optional) and stir in the sherry and tomato paste. Cook until it is reduced by half. Add the tomatoes and oregano, cover and cook until the small tomatoes burst, about 12-15 minutes. Stir in the basil and parsley and cook an additional 8-10 minutes. Add the lobster meat and simmer until meat is heated through, do NOT overcook or the meat will be rubbery. Remove from the heat and serve with your favorite pasta or rice, I chose to use some store bought crab stuffed ravioli. Bon Appetit!!
