Lemon Tarragon Lobster Pasta Salad
1/2 Pound Bow Tie Pasta
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Pint Grape or Cherry Tomatoes
1 1/2 Pounds Lobster Meat, fully cooked
1/2 Cup Fresh Tarragon, roughly chopped
1 Shallot, minced
1/2 Cup Diced Celery
1/2 Lemon, juiced
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions. Meanwhile, heat a sauté pan on high. When pan is hot, add 1 Tbsp olive oil and tomatoes.
Cook tomatoes on medium high heat for 2-4 minutes, mashing half with a potato masher or spoon to release juices. When pasta is finished cooking, drain water and toss with tomatoes immediately. Cool to room temperature.
While the pasta is cooling, cut the lobster meat into bite size chunks, chop the tarragon, mince the shallot, dice the celery and juice the lemon.
Combine pasta and tomatoes with lobster, tarragon, shallot, celery and lemon juice in a large bowl.
Add olive oil, salt and pepper and toss to coat. Taste after a few minutes and adjust seasoning if necessary. Transfer to a serving bowl or platter and enjoy!
looks yummy – going to try this but use some good lemon infused olive oil I recently acquired!
