What Do You Serve With Lobster?

Save

Steamed lobster tastes delightful, especially served with a side of melted butter for dipping. The meat of the tail and claws is firm, mild and sweet. The lobster should be alive when you buy it and cooked as soon as possible.

Wine

Drink a medium- to full-bodied white wine, such as a Chardonnay, with steamed or grilled lobster. This wine will also stand up to a lobster bisque or lobster and pasta in marinara sauce.

Condiments

Serve steamed lobster with a twist of lemon or melted butter for dipping. Purists prefer plain melted butter, but you can add a little garlic to the butter -- too much, though, will overpower the lobster's flavor.

Beef and Seafood Combinations

Offer lobster in combination with beef and other seafood products. Steamed mussels, clams or oysters provide an appetizer. Plate the lobster beside a filet mignon for a surf and turf dinner. For a Spanish paella, cook the lobster with other seafood, rice and spices.

Grilled, Steamed or Boiled Vegetables

Present the lobster with sweet corn and new potatoes. Additionally, serve your guests fresh bell peppers, onions, summer squash and zucchini roasted or grilled. Toss the vegetables in a little olive oil with kosher salt and some freshly ground pepper.
