linguine with creamy lemon sauce and lobster

Ingredients

  • 12 oz (375 g) linguine pasta
  • 3 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 green onion thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) 10% half-and-half or 18% table cream
  • 1 cup (250 mL) diced cooked lobster meat
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) drained capers
  • Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley

Preparation

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package directions until tender but firm (al dente). Drain, reserving 1 cup (250 mL) cooking water; return pasta to pot.

Meanwhile, in a skillet, sauté bacon over medium-high heat for about 5 min or until crisp. Add green onion and sauté for 1 min. Whisk flour into cream and stir into pan; simmer, stirring and scraping up brown bits, for about 3 min or until thickened. Stir in lobster and capers; simmer, stirring, for 1 min or until heated through. Stir in lemon zest and juice.

 Add sauce to pasta in pot and gently toss, adding enough of the reserved pasta water to moisten. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve sprinkled with parsley.
