Portuguese Piri Piri Lobster (Lagosta de Piri Piri)

A lovely dish with a Portuguese lobster recipe


2 cups of peeled and diced potatos, 2 table spoons of olive oil, 6 oz (170g) of Portuguese chourico or a similar kind of spicy and smoked sausage removed from casings and chopped, 1 cup of finely chopped onions, 3 table spoons of finely chopped red bell peppers, 2 bay leaves, 2 table spoons of minced garlic, 1 table spoon of minced shallots, 2 table spoons of chopped fresh flat leaf parsley, 1/2 cup of chopped pepper-stuffed green olives, 1/2 cup of chopped pitted black olives, 1 and 1/2 cups of seeded and chopped tomatos, salt to taste, 1/2 tea spoon of crushed chilli (piri piri) or piri piri to taste, 1 live lobster of about 1/2 lb (700g) split lengthwise in half, 1/2 cup of dry white wine, 1/4 cup of chopped spring/green onions.


Bring the potatos and enough water to cover to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat. Cook until the potatos are just tender, about 6 minutes. Drain. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until just beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in the onions, red bell peppers, and bay leaves and cook until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, shallots, and parsley and cook, stirring until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the olives, potatos, tomatoes, salt, and chilli (piri piri), stir well to combine, and cook for 1 minute. Add the split lobster, shell side down. Add 1 cup water and the wine, cover, and simmer until the lobster shells are deep red and the meat is cooked through, about 10 minutes. With tongs, transfer each lobster half to a shallow soup bowl. Season the broth if necessary, remove the bay leaves, and spoon the broth over the lobster. Garnish with the chopped spring/green onions and serve immediately.

Some people refrain from preparing a lobster recipe at home and the main reason is that they don’t want to cook it alive, which I agree. So to achieve that just before cooking, you can quickly stick a Paring Knife in between the eyes of the lobster. That is probably the most humane way to prepare a lobster to be cooked at home.
