Lobster Asparagus and Gruyere Quiche

Let’s start with the lobster. Don’t let this intimidate you. It’s truly an easy seafood to cook and prepare, much like cooking shrimp. And, if you can’t find lobster, large shrimp work great here too, just make sure they are chopped into smaller pieces. So start with a saucepan with a tight lid, large enough to accommodate your lobster tails. We only need a cup of cooked meat so typically, 2 tails around 5-6 oz will do. The raw weight will be heavier because it includes water and the shell. Add enough water so that when the tail are in the pan there is about 1 inch of water. Add some salt. Place the tails in the saucepan with the lid on. Cook about 5 minutes until the lobster is plump and opaque. When they are done, remove at rinse with cold water right away to stop the cooking. Remember, they will be in the quiche, so we really don’t want to overcook. Now, take the cooled meat away from the shells. Once removed from the shells, dry any excess liquid and chop into bite size pieces.

From here, follow the recipe for the quiche. In about 45 minutes you will have an impressive, brunch dish that your family or guests will thoroughly enjoy!
