The things around the house...


Yes, using things around the house is especially delightful when you happen to have lobster tails in your freezer! These recipes are easy to make and, for the most part, with easy to find ingredients. If lobster is not easily accessible, this sauce would go great on any white fish, shrimp, or even scallops. Cheers and happy eating! 

Lobster Sauce
From My Father's Daughter

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon maple syrup
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives

Whisk together the mustard, maple syrup, and vinegar. Slowly whisk in the olive oil, fold in the chives, and season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place lobster tails on a greased baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Cut top of lobster all the way to the tail. Using your fingers, scoop the meat out and let it rest on the shell. Sprinkle tails with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake.

Baking times vary. I use these times, found at lobsterhelp.com

salt and pepper

Fill a large pot with cold water and place on stove set to high. Peel the potatoes, halve them, then cut them in thirds. Place the potatoes in the cool water and allow them to boil until tender. Drain. Add the remaining ingredients and mash potatoes. If they are to dry, add some more sour cream.

Honey Dijon Carrots

1 mega carrot (or 2-3 regular size carrots)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2-3 tablespoons of honey (depending on how sweet you like your carrots...I used 3, my husband would have like less)
1 tablespoon chopped chives
1 tablespoons of butter

Peel carrots and then cut on a diagonal to about 1/4 inch thickness. Heat the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan set to medium heat. Gently toss in the carrots and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
