Stir-fry Ginger and Garlic Lobster with Minced Meat

Yesterday when I was food shopping in Queens,I saw a full tank of new arrival fresh lobster swimming around in the fish tank.When I glance at the price tag, I was surprised !! it's written "Lobster from Boston $5.49 per lb only"!!! Usually fresh lobster above 1 pound,the seller will price it at least $7.99 and above..I quickly ask the seller for 3 lobsters..The average weight of each lobster is about one and half pound..It's been awhile I cook fresh lobster at home..Honestly,I'm dying for Chinese cooking style lobster rather then steamed.But Eliot is not keen to have his lobster cook in ginger,garlic or scallion.One word !! He prefer his lobster steamed with butter.As I said American style lobster cooking.Well,I guess I have to make another different type of lobster dish for him..Anyway,I cut up 2 whole lobsters ,coated with flour, pan-fried before stir-fry in ginger,garlic and minced meat..Viola!! what a spectacular lobster feast both Mishu and mommy had!


2 fresh whole lobsters,about 1 1/2 lb each,remove the head,cut the tail into 4 pieces and remove claws(smashed the claws with meat tenderizer tool or the back edge of cleaver)
2 inch ginger,peeled and cut julienne
4-5 cloves fresh garlic,minced
100-150 gm minced pork
2 eggs

1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 corn flour
1 tbsp salt

4 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp ground pepper powder
1/2 cup oil

a bunch of cut scallion and cilantro
1:Heat large skillet with oil at high heat.Combine corn flour ,all purpose flour and salt in a large bowl,mix well.Coat cut lobster with flour mixture,shake the excess flour before place into the hot oil.Do not overcrowded lobster the skillet when pan-fry.
2:Pan-fry lobster for about 1 minutes before remove to a large plate,set aside.Do not over fried the lobster,it's tend to get chewy and tough.Use the same skillet ,if it's too mush oil remove some,add in garlic and ginger.Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes or until fragrant.
3:Add in minced meat,sauteed for 1 minutes before add in eggs..Scramble the eggs with minced meat,add in soy sauce,sugar and ground pepper.Check the seasoning,before toss in the cooked lobster.Toss all the ingredients well.
4:Toss cut scallion and cilantro before remove from heat.Dish out and serve warm.

I am salivating just looking at your dish. We do have live lobster here in the supermarket but they were around $8.99. I just wait till it is cheaper. Thinking of making some lobster rolls. Looking at your dish I might change my mind :)

lucky you to find reasonably fresh lobsters. I think the lobsters here are exorbitant and not as fresh. and I love your way of cooking it with lots of garlic :p
