Crack open the champagne… prepare for a mind-blowing experience. Truffle butter lobster combines chardonnay, vermouth, shallots, heavy cream, ginger, mushrooms, and, of course, black truffle butter, available at gourmet stores and markets, or online from D’Artagnan.
This recipe, from the cookbook, Fish, calls for traditional linguine, though you can make this dish gluten-free by using brown rice or gluten free pasta. (I’m a fan of Jovial brown rice pasta from Tuscany, the closest to the real thing, and organic to boot.)
While this dish isn’t one of our five-minute wonders, a little work pays off in a staggering way; it’s the perfect special dish for New Year’s Eve or any celebratory evening. (You want romance? This is it, baby.)
