Lobster Stuffed Baked Cod is the perfect meal for a special occasion. Think about Valentine’s Day dinner, birthdays, anniversaries or a random “you’re special”. Buttery cod topped with lump lobster meat and beurre blanc, also known as “white butter”.
As far as fish goes, cod is fairly inexpensive. A thick baked cod fillet of fish that is white and flaky and fork tender, it is for more than just fish and chips or a fish fry.
You can grill, broil or just bake cod with a little bit of lemon, salt and pepper. But you know what really takes the cake? Lobster Stuffed Baked Cod.
It does increase the grocery bill just a little, but you only need one lobster tail for 4 fillets of cod. And if lobster doesn’t float your boat, you can use langostinos, shrimp or even crab with the same recipe! And if cod isn’t your gig, swamp out the fish for salmon, halibut or tilapia.
Lump lobster meat is gently seasoned and paired with sour cream, which adds a slightly tart taste to the sweet clarified butter and smoky paprika.
I originally saw a similar recipe on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on a a flight from Chicago to Baltimore. I can’t even remember where they were located or the name of the restaurant, but I am going to take a guess it was up North towards Boston or Maine.
