Roasted Lobster with Brown Butter, Garlic, Ginger and Soy Sauce Glaze Recipe

Roasted lobster with brown butter, garlic, ginger and soy sauce is an fusion of western and asian flavour. Instead of using common herbs like rosemarry, thyme, sage, and  tarragon for the brown butter partner, i’m using garlic, ginger and soy sauce for the glaze. Brown butter is actually caramelized regular butter, but it’s needed prolonged heat to let the butter passed the melting point and made it’s milk content denaturated and browned. Brown butter slightly losen it’s milky taste but had a nice nutty flavour. For the garlic and ginger, i grated it first and then squizzed out the juice and using the juice only. You can save the remaining pulp fo making another dish.

Roasted Lobster with Brown Butter, Garlic, Ginger and Soy Sauce Glaze Recipe

Making a brown butter for glazing the lobster prior to roasing is actually kinda tricky. You need to carefully watch over your pan closely unless you get your prescious butter burn. First you need to melt the butter on the HEAVY BOTTOM PAN, Once melted the butter will foam up a bit, then subside. Watch carefully as lightly browned specks begin to form at the bottom of the pan. Smell the butter; it should have a nutty aroma. Remove from heat and place on a cool surface to help stop the butter from cooking further and perhaps burning. That’s why i pour the mixture of ginger juice, garlic juice and  soy sauce for the roasted lobster glaze right after i turn off the heat.

Recipe Roast Lobster with Brown Butter, Garlic, Ginger and Soy Sauce Glaze

Brown butter or beurre noisette in France is the main key for the roasted lobster flavour. Unsalted butter is melted over low heat and allowed to separate into butterfat and denaturated milk solids. The milk solids agglomerated and sinking in the bottom of the pan and, if left over gentle heat, will begin to brown. When the milk solids turn into toasted peanut color, the pan is removed from the heat, i like to exposed the bottom of the pan with running cold water to  make the cooking process suddently stopped.

Roasting a lobster is tricky too, you need to pan seared the lobster meat in sizzling hot pan with the meat side down to seal the natural juices of it to prevent it drained out during the following cooking process. Just like my Lobster with Sweet and Sour Chili Sauce, the pan searing prior to cooking it within the sauce made the lobster meat still tender and moist. Another tips for cooking lobster is you should seasoned  the lobster with salt just before cooking it because salt is hygroscopic . It makes the water is dripped off from the lobster meat and made it easily dried when cooked. One most important thing i learned from making this dish, DO NOT USING DARK SOY SAUCE!, instead you got dark colored lobster meat like mine.

Braised venison short ribs is not kinda daily meal for me, then once i had bunch of venison ribs and also the tenderloin, it simply made me happy.

This kind of game protein is usually served with liquor callled arak. The alcohol content is a potent blood vessel dilatator that made the corpora cavernosa (erectile tissue) that mostly consist of blood capillary can dilatated and  filled with the blood even better. This actually the same fact about dringking snake’s blood and bile, the secret is the liquor that mixed within it. I guess i’m keeping that secrets for me for next following years after i get married, i’m using it now for a gourmet adventure.

Braising venison ribs is a very simple and easy following steps.  There are three basic steps or braising; marinating, pan searing and simmering. Since i’m using a junvenile rainforest deer, the simmering steps period is preety quick, 30 minutes it’s all needed to tenderize the ribs. Well, actually i  not only ‘forced’ my sister to purchased the venison short ribs, but also the tenderloin.

Braised venison with red wine or white wine is a common gamey meat preparation in western cuisine. I’m using two kinds of wine here, my last half cup of red wine and white wine. Instead of wine, you can also using some asian liquor like rice wine or shaoxing wine. I also added some kashmiri or Indian saffron within the simmering broth to enhance the flavour and the looks. The vivid yellow color is a result of a pinch of it’s strands. Since my sister like a tangy and slightly sweet flavour i brought some of my homemade sun dried tomato for pleased her. Slightly different from my previously Braised Beef Oxtail with Red Wine, Tomatoes and Carrot, this braised venison ribs is not taste that sweet. For the garnish, i add some torch ginger bloosom on it.

The bitter edge of radicchio is cooked off a bit in this risotto, but the primary flavor does involve the sophisticated slightly bitter flavor one expects in chicories, endives, and radicchio.

AYou can use any of theese for this recipe, and don’t forget to double the amount to get the same effect as the blue cheese. For making the quick and easy radicchio risotto, you should use arborio rice or any short grain rice because it cooked faster than medium or long grain rice.

Crispy Soft Shell Crab with Salted Egg Battered Recipe

Soft shell crab with salted egg yolk batter recipe is a seasonal dish since you can get it fresh all the year, but frozen. Soft-shell crab is  molted crab that harvested when the  new  crab exoskeleton (shell) and are still soft. It means almost of the entire animal can be eaten, rather than having to shell the animal to reach the meat. Since the soft shell crab  used rather small size crab, it made the soft shell crab double or more price-value compared to ordinary ones. Crab shell periodically becomes soft during natural molting process and it happens in a short period, thats why the fisherman should harvest it because delay period make the crab shell hardens back quickly.

Common method to profoked the crab molting process, fisherman usually mutilated the crab claws and all the walking leg. The swimmer leg is left behind to keep the crab alive. This cruelt method is still applied nowdays but some fisherman used the humanely molting process with crab molting enzim from spinach extract found by Prof.Yushinta Fujaya, a Indonesian professor from Hasanuddin University. The application of spinach extract can induce molting process in crabs, thus helps the crab farmers to produce soft shelled mud crabs simultaneously on desirable schedule.
