Sunday was a good day. We are fortunate to live in New England where lobster is inexpensive ($4.99 per pound for chicks) and widely available. Big lobsters are far more impressive to look at but for a sweet, tender treat chicks (1-1 1/4 pounds) are the choice of most chefs. A chick lobster yields approximately 3 1/2 ounces of meat…that’s about 20 grams of protein! The local fish shop will also steam them to order as long as you call ahead. No muss! No fuss! I’m a lobster purist so I have no recipe to share today. We ate our lobster with the utensils God gave us. I served them with mashed potatoes mixed with equal parts skim milk and fat free half and half then dusted with a pinch of truffle salt to make them a little extra special…they were sharing the stage with lobster after all. As for GP friendly I would rank lobster just a little more difficult than chicken breast or white fish. Chew thoroughly!
The shells are in the freezer with plans of being transformed into a low fat GP friendly lobster bisque at Thanksgiving. Stay tuned!
Such a special meal deserved a special ending so after cleaning up I persuaded Hubby to go out for a store-bought angel food cake and a GP friendly strawberry shortcake was born.
