Cook a Lobster Dinner for 3 for Under $10

cheap lobster dinner recipesThe other day I was at the store and decided to challenge myself. How can I cook a lobster dinner for three people for under $10. When I saw the lobster tails for $4.99 I decided let’s go for it and make a recipe for a cheap lobster dinner.

The trick with the main ingredient costing half of your budget is to find something filling and affordable, so I went with a pasta. Pasta matches great with the flavor and the different noodles can provide an awesome texture. With about $3 left I decided to go for flavors that are strong and can compliment the lobster well.

While they are boiling, slice your red onion and chop your garlic.  Then take a large frying pan and pour in some olive oil and heat it on low heat.  Once it is hot, add in your onions and garlic.

Next take the lobster tails out of the boiling water and place them somewhere to cool.   While they are cooling, throw sea salt into the pot of water and into the olive oil, onions and garlic.  A few pinches in each are perfect, then add the pasta to the boiling water that the lobster tails cooked in.

Once the pasta is cooking, remove the edible part and chop it into pieces.  When the pasta is about done, add the lobster pieces into the frying pan with the extra virgin olive oil, red onion and garlic.
