Home-cooked Lobster E- Meen


The other day we were invited to friend's birthday dinner and was treated to a meal of lobster E-meen. I have never cooked lobster before and it looks a lot easier than what it seems.
These yummy buggers relaxing in the sink before becoming our dinner



My friend being a Hong Kongese, used the Hong Kong style E-meen. It looked very different from the Malaysian type....it's thicker and more al dente and the combination of the E-meen with the gorgeous lobster is totally heavenly. The lobsters were so fresh, with sweet juicy flesh and the E-meen totally absorbed all the nice flavours, together with the spring onions and ginger it was perfect !! The sauce is very simple : just oyster sauce, sugar, salt, chinese cooking wine and water....simply perfecto. As you can see from the pictures, there are more lobsters than E-meen...hahaha....sure nice lah. Will try to make this dish on my own when there are fresh lobsters available soon....yummmm!!!

Lastly, a yummy chestnut filled fruit topped cake for dessert to compliment our perfect dinner.
