Lobster is considered something of a luxury, and therefore it has been priced accordingly. If you love the taste of lobster but don't have the money to afford the real thing, you may want to try your hand at making a classic money-saving dish, "Poor Man's Lobster." Consisting of cod instead of luxurious lobster, this dish replicates the taste of lobster at a fraction of the cost. Easy to prepare and easier on your wallet than real lobster, this dish is worth trying.
Things You'll Need
- 6 cod filets (6 oz each, 1-inch thick, thawed if previously frozen)
- 6 cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 1 cup butter, melted
- Paprika to taste
- Nonstick cooking spray
- Slotted spoon
- Paper towels
- Large stock pot
- Broiler pan
Preheat your broiler.
Spray the broiler pan with a light coating of nonstick cooking spray.
Combine water, sugar, and salt in the stock pot. Bring to a boil.
Take the pot off the heat, and place the fillets in the water.
Cover the pot with a lid and wait 5 minutes.
Extract the fillets from the water and pat dry with paper towels.
Dip each fillet in the melted butter, and place on the broiler pan. Make sure to space them evenly apart.
Drizzle the remaining melted butter over the top of the fillets, then sprinkle with paprika.
Place the pan under the broiler for 8 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately with additional melted butter, if desired.
