Ingredients

  • 1 package pasta of your choice
  • olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves sliced thinly
  • 1 green chili pepper sliced thinly
  • 1 white onion chopped finely
  • 1 leek thinly sliced
  • 1 small box of fresh mushrooms cut in boats
  • 1 pound frozen lobster without the shell
  • 1 cup half and half (or cooking cream as it is called in Iceland)
  • ca 150g cream cheese with black pepper or with mixed herbs
  • some white wine
  • salt or chicken stock
  • black pepper freshly ground
  • some cayenne pepper

Directions

  • Thaw the lobster and cook the pasta. Fry the onion in a pan til glazed. Add mushrooms and fry til the mushrooms have shrunk. Then add the cream, cream cheese salt and pepper. When it has come to a boil add the lobster. The juice from the lobster package may also be added.
  • When it starts boiling again, let simmer for 2 minutes or til the lobster is ready. Very important not to let it cook for too long.
  • Taste with some white wine, salt, pepper and cayenne!
  • Serve with freshly cooked pasta of your choice.
  • I think Tagliatelle would be great with it!
  • Enjoy with a great Riesling if you like :)

Notes

This recipie is from an Icelandic News Paper given by an Icelandic lady living in LA at the time.
