What ingredients do you need to make this lobster seafood pasta recipe?

The base of the sauce: Is a mix of garlic powder, red pepper flakes, lemon juice and zest, shallots and butter. We are amping it up with some calabrian chili’s to make this recipe spicy.

Tomatoes: We are using both chopped canned tomatoes, and roasted tomatoes here! You can opt to go full canned tomato here if you prefer.

Lobster: Get your best cooked lobster here to add in the pasta.

Pasta: I love the thickness of bucatini here and I feel it works really well with the richness from the lobster and the tomatoes together, so good!

Garnishing: with chopped parsley! Kosher salt and black pepper to taste.

Steps To Make This Recipe

First, begin cooking your pasta!

Boil a large pot of water and cook your pasta according to the package instructions in a separate pot, taking out a couple minutes before al dente.

After that, make the base of your sauce.

Heat a pan or large skillet with a drizzle of olive oil, add your spices: garlic powder, red pepper flakes, lemon zest and shallots. Salt and pepper to taste. Let simmer for 1-2 minutes on medium low heat to not burn the shallot.

Add in your tomatoes to burst and roast for another 5-10 minutes.

Finish your sauce

Toss in butter, lemon juice and calabrian chili’s (either oil or paste works here!) Add your chopped tomatoes. Let your sauce simmer for 4-5 minutes to let the flavors combine. Let the canned tomatoes get warmed through and the fresh tomatoes should be bursted and jammy, combining all together in one sauce.

Finally, add in your lobster, pasta, and pasta water!

Toss in your cooked lobster meat, lobster tail meat and lobster claws as well next and stir well. Add your cooked pasta with a dash of reserved pasta water, as needed. As a result, the pasta water should help get your sauce nice and glossy. Let the flavors and the sauce with the pasta come together. Top with chopped parsley and serve!
