From The Galley: Delicious Lobster Mac N Cheese

This recipe makes 6 servings.

Ingredients For the Mac & Cheese

  • 16 ounces macaroni pasta
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Lobster Tail Preparation Directions

  • 1-2 Baja lobster tails, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley

Mac & Cheese Directions

• Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

• Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the macaroni, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is cooked through but still slightly firm, about 8 minutes. Drain well.

• Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. When the butter starts to foam and bubble, stir in the flour; cook on medium heat until flour just begins to turn pale yellow, 3 to 4 minutes. Add thyme, cayenne pepper, and white pepper; cook and stir another minute, then whisk in 1 cup of milk until smooth. Pour in remaining milk and whisk again. Bring the sauce just to a simmer.

• Stir in nutmeg, Worcestershire sauce, and salt; simmer on medium-low heat until thickened, about 8 minutes, whisking often. Turn heat off, then add 2 1/4 cups of Cheddar cheese; stir until melted and combined. Add Dijon mustard.

• Transfer the macaroni into a large bowl, then pour in the cheese sauce; stir to thoroughly combine sauce with pasta

• Set aside until lobster is ready

Lobster Directions

• Cut a slit in the underside of the tail. Remove the meat, using a fork if necessary to loosen it from the shell, pulling the meat from the wide end to the tail tip.

• Chop the lobster tail meat into, bite sized pieces – leave some chunky for garnish

• Add the sea salt to the chopped lobster. Toss to coat evenly

• Add the butter, olive oil and dried parsley to a medium-high heat sauté pan

• Add the lobster to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes, it will be slightly undercooked

• Remove from heat
