Tonight we whipped up a quick, tasty meal on the grill. Last week when we were trying to decide what to do with our sorrel, we came across a recipe for grilled lobster tails with a sorrel sauce. This week, I happened to see lobster tails on sale at the grocery store, so it was a no-brainer.
We started with the sauce since the lobster tails wouldn't take long to cook. Though the sauce itself was really simple as well. Chop up a shallot and toss it in a pan with some cooking wine. The recipe calls for Sauternes, but since we didn't have any on hand, we just used marsala wine. Any sweet, dry-ish wine will probably do. Once it boils and reduces, add in your cream.
Now for the lobstaaah! You'll want to crack the shell a bit with your knife, so you can get in there and season the tail with some oil, salt & pepper. Then just throw them on the grill. We cooked our tails for about 4 minutes on each side, and they came out perfect!
It was a really quick meal to throw together, and didn't require a ton of ingredients, which I always like. The sorrel sauce really brought out the sweetness of the lobster, and the grilled ramps were divine. So there you have it--a restaurant quality meal that was easy and delicious, and doable on a random weeknight but good enough for a special occasion!
