lobster rissLOBSTER RISOTTO PERNOD

Mississippi marries Maine, with France and Italy providing the crowns in this marriage of aquatic royalty. The rich lobster is made wealthier when paired with a rich risotto dressed with mascarpone, Pernod, capers, lemons, and seasoning. Sublime indulgence, as follows…

INGREDIENTS

 2 pounds lobster meat (from tails or whole lobsters)
2 quarts of lobster or seafood stock (can be purchased or produced from above)
2 bay leaves
3 tbls butter
1 tbls minced garlic, or equivalent cloves
1 small sweet onion, finely diced
½ cup finely chopped leeks
1 cup dry white wine
1 ½ cups Delta Belle White Rice
1 tbls white pepper
1 tbls salt
½ tsp paprika
¼ tsp cayenne, or to taste
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbls Pernod

METHOD

     Boil lobster in water or seafood stock with bay leaf about 8 minutes, or until done. Remove lobster, and place in bed of ice. When cool enough to handle, remove shell and cut meat into small pieces about ½ inch long. If making own stock, place shells back into water boil, and add extra garlic and salt, and simmer. If using seafood stock, keep simmering.
