Planning a holiday menu can be stressful—trying to please a wide array of family members or friends is no simple task—but you’ll increase your chance of success by offering your guests the most loved luxury ingredient.
Because who doesn’t get excited about lobster?
From apps to sides to main courses—or should we say Maine courses—we’ve got you covered for the most elegant holiday spreads.
Start with night with Asian Maine Lobster Cakes with tarragon aioli, a recipe perfected by Chef Scott Samuel from The Culinary Institute of America. With coconut milk, ginger, sweet chili sauce and cilantro, they’ll impress your worldliest dinner guests.
If you’re looking for a light first course, you can’t go wrong with a Crunchy Maine Lobster Salad. Chef Danie Connolly of Absolutely Perfect! pairs lobster with pickled watermelon and a curry flavor for a unique delicacy.
On a cold winter’s night, you might want to go heavier with your first course—try a Corn and Maine Lobster chowder that will warm up your dinner guests—deliciously.
For your main course, treat your guests with Chef Wilfred Beriau’s creamy Maine Lobster Pasta with fresh vegetables. Chef Beriau, a former culinary instructor at Southern Maine Community College, created this Sauteed Maine Lobster dish—but your guests will thank you for making it.
